All children deserve an outstanding education and all teachers deserve outstanding professional development.
Our aim is to improve the outcomes and life chances of young people in our schools.
What we do, and how we work, is informed by a set of values and beliefs shared across the Alliance.
The Tandridge Teaching Alliance (TTA) is a new Teaching School in Tandridge. The Alliance has St Mary’s CofE Junior School as the lead school. We understand, from successfully working together, on training projects and programmes that together we can ensure excellence in learning, teaching and leadership. We are proud to be able to offer our services and shared opportunities in Tandridge and beyond to help develop our core aims.
TTA was founded on the shared belief that schools and settings have a moral responsibility to work together for the benefit of all children and young people. Within every school and setting there is invaluable expertise, outstanding practice and examples of great leadership, but all schools and settings also have areas that need development. TTA believes that by working together to identify and develop areas of expertise, and then sharing them, we will be able to develop a system for self-sustaining school and setting improvement.
TTA is a partnership of schools and settings, with the membership status reviewed on an annual basis. Membership of the Tandridge Teaching Alliance is open to all interested schools and learning settings who commit to our shared ethos.
The TTA Lead School believe that they will be able to achieve more and have a greater impact on children and young peoples’ lives through collaboration rather than competition.
The TTA Lead School does not benefit financially from any funding generated through TTA activity. All income is re-distributed to fund work across the activity strands for the benefit of our Schools. At the same time, TTA Lead and Strategic Partner schools are not expected to subsidise the work of the Teaching Schools Alliance, and therefore all TTA activities are costed so as to compensate schools for their role in leading aspects of TTA work.
