  1. 1. Teaching SchoolsupdateBob HarrisonChair-Teaching Schools NewTechnology Advisory BoardPaul HaighDirector- Hallam TeachingSchool Alliance, Notre DameHigh School, Sheffield
  2. 2. 2
  3. 3. Role of Teaching SchoolsAs well as offering training and support for their alliance themselves,teaching schools will identify and co-ordinate expertise from their alliance,using the best leaders and teachers to:1 play a greater role in training new entrants to the profession2 lead peer-to-peer professional and leadership development3 identify and develop leadership potential4 provide support for other schools5 designate and broker Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs)6 engage in research and development3
  4. 4. Who can be a Teaching School? Designation is open to… • any phase of school: nursery, primary, middle, secondary, 6th form college, special or pupil referral unit / short stay school • any type of school including independent, academy, federated, faith school, free school, studio school, university technical college (UTC) grammar school or school leading a chain • smaller schools, such as smaller special or primary schools, as the model enables more than one school to share the designated role of leading a teaching schools alliance4
  5. 5. Who can be a Teaching School?Designation criteria … a high bar …• a clear track-record of successful collaboration with other schools• Ofsted outstanding for overall effectiveness, teaching and learning and leadership and management• consistently high levels of pupil performance or continued improvement• an outstanding headteacher with at least three years headship experience, and outstanding senior and middle leaders with capacity to support others.5
  6. 6. Teaching School numbers216 Teaching Schools now approved• 85 Primary• 106 Secondary• 24 Special Schools• 1 Sixth Form College• About 10% from Church Schools- matching their size in system• Around 150 more about to be announced (they were told this week)• 150 more bidding this summer/ autumn to be announced Spring 2014• Perhaps some more in cohort 6 to strategically target gaps6
  7. 7. Review of designation• A role and not a reward• Each year judged against action plan success criteria (which should reflect local priorities and national KPIs), moderated by peer review• College also looks at school performance, Ofsted data and status of the headteacher• All teaching schools reviewed in year 4 - those demonstrating positive impact within their alliance will be re-designated• The brand must remain strong and credible - teaching schools can be reviewed at any time of they no longer meet eligibility criteria• However, the intention is to retain designation where there is capacity, progress and clear evidence of quality…8
  8. 8. Teaching School National Lead StatusEach Teaching School identifies up to 3 areas it is particular strong onThese can be subjects or strategic issues like business or behaviourA small number have identified ICT as a lead areaIf Teaching Schools are going to lead the self improving system into the 21st century should the role of new technology not be near the top of their agendas?A group of Lead ICT TSAs formed NTAB and successfully lobbied DfE for new technology funding for teaching schools which was announced by Michael Gove here at BETT last year and has now passed to the schools9

  11. 11. Plymouth University Research-TeachingSchools ICT Capability• ICT Capability very variable across and between TSA’s• Confident about own teachers but less about providing cpd for others• Focus phase specific• Lack of understanding about implications of new national curriculum• Lack of confidence in leading CPD in this area• Primary more concerned with TEL than ICT• Secondary TSA less confident about Computer Science than Digital Literacy and IT• Little awareness in TSA about use of social media for cpd• Little awareness of TeachMeets and Digital Leaders as effective cpd• Need for coordination and network of support• Coaching and Research needed to underpin effective cpd12
  12. 12. What next for NTAB?• Looking for partner organisations to collaborate with who are interested in:• Supporting schools with Technology Enhanced Learning• Helping primary and secondary schools implement the new ICT National Curriculum PoS• Looking to develop the vocational curriculum around technical support (UTCs)• Supporting school leadership programmes around the strategic leadership of new technology13
