School-to-School Support

The Minster Learning Alliance has a wealth of experience in supporting school improvement and has a range of accredited leaders of education available for deployment. All deployments are negotiated and brokered to ensure they meet the specific needs of the schools receiving support and are available on a ‘one-off’ basis or as part of larger plans of support. Deployments are for a minimum of half a day and are designed to develop the knowledge, skills and practice of the school’s own staff – leaving a legacy of increased capacity for the future, not just a ‘quick fix’ to address an immediate issue.  

Deployments can be used to:

  • Develop the capacity of middle or senior leaders
  • Provide INSET and professional learning
  • Review the effectiveness of a department or phase
  • Develop the curriculum provision
  • Moderate assessment
  • Mentor and coach staff
  • Improve the quality of teaching and learning
