School to School Support

School improvement is a collaborative endeavour and to support this the Alliance has a number of Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs), Local Leaders of Education (LLEs) and have links to Bristol’s National Leaders of Education (NLEs) who are available to support in school. This may be in class coaching, subject leader joint support and planning; INSET or staff meeting support amongst a range of activities.

We also have links to a National Leader of Governance (NLG) too who is available to support schools and their governing bodies.

A number of SLEs have been appointed to the Teaching School from both Primary and Special schools across the city.  Each have been accredited by the National Teaching Council: their profiles and areas of expertise can be found in the links below.

If you would like a teacher who has been designated as a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE), an experienced headteacher who has been designated as a Local Leader of Education (LLE) or a National Leader of Education (NLE) to support in your school please  contact Mike Eatwell, manager of the teaching school to discuss your needs by emailing him at:
