Chadsgrove Teaching School Alliance
Chadsgrove Teaching School Alliance is an alliance of schools and strategic partners committed to sharing and developing their expertise in a collaborative way to raise standards for all children and young people in education. Chadsgrove TSA is committed to supporting schools and teachers to deliver educational excellence for all children. Our services enable all schools and academies to improve outcomes and develop outstanding provision for pupils with SEND, alongside subject and curriculum support for mainstream schools. Through harnessing expertise in inclusion, we deliver a programme of CPD covering a broad range of topics. To enable leaders to sustain delivery of effective inclusive pedagogy, we have a comprehensive range of school support services which are delivered by Specialist Leaders of Education and other specialist professionals. From January to June we run a programme of courses for teachers who are new to working in special schools or specialist bases. The course is also relevant to those taking on a SENCO role, and we provide ongoing support through our SENCO Network for Worcestershire schools. We offer leadership programmes that support special and mainstream collaboration, and our School Direct teacher training ensures that Primary teachers of the future will be amply equipped to support learning for pupils with a range of increasingly complex difficulties. Our work is underpinned by partnerships with the University of Birmingham and University.
