Southwark Teaching School Alliance is proud to be one of only a handful of groups designated as a hub for the Education Development Trust’s Schools Partnership Programme (SPP). SPP is a cluster-based school improvement model based on rigorous and impact-focused peer review. It supports school leaders to drive their own improvement, through a continuous cycle of self-review, peer review and school-to-school support and improvement.
“It was an excellent opportunity to work on an objective view of an area of our organisation which we had identified for development. The process of working with other local colleagues really helped us to clarify our thinking and has significantly influenced our strategic planning.” (Southwark Headteacher, commenting on their participation in our 2016 peer review pilot.)
We currently have more than 20 Southwark primary schools, secondary schools and nurseries working together in five peer review clusters. Participation in peer review is free to Southwark Teaching School Alliance members and open to non-members for a reduced fee thanks to our hub status.
Our SPP hub status also means that we are able to support other groups to establish their own peer review clusters. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
