New for summer 2019!!!

*SAVE THE DATE: One of our partners, Reading Plus, have very generously offered to pay for all our ShiNE Teaching School Alliance schools to send one member of staff along to a literacy training day on the 6th June. David Waugh will lead the day for us. He will focus on reading for pleasure, active engagement with texts, encouraging reading and will draw upon strategies he uses regularly in schools with his own children’s novels. David will provide resources so it should be a good quality CPD day and completely FREE for you

We work closely with our partner organisations:

Barbara Middleton MBE, Executive Headteacher Shiremoor Primary School, and Backworth Park Primary School National Leader of Education, Regional Representative on Sub-Group for School Improvement, Pupil Premium Reviewer and Director of ShiNE TSA.  As the inspirational leader of an outstanding and innovative team she is responsible for partnership working across the alliance.

Our SLEs currently support a number of schools up and down the country and are a tremendous source of inspiration within school."
