Tidal Teaching School Alliance is dedicated to ensuring that our School to School Support Programme provides schools with a significant and extensive level of expertise. Tidal have experience of supporting many schools directly in the past few years. We strongly believe that the best way of school improvement is through school to school support.
Our track record demonstrates that the support we can offer can turn a school around from an ‘Ofsted category.' We have expertise at all levels of teachers, middle leaders and support staff and at National Leaders of Education (NLE) level.
We can offer a variety of support and relationships that can be built on a formal and sometimes informal level through coaching, mentoring and one to one support.
The Alliance has, MAT School Improvement Partners and a CEOs, National Leaders of Education (NLEs), Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs), and Lead Professionals. Tidal has also successfully appointed SLEs covering Teaching and Learning, Middle leadership, Assessment and Mentoring/personal development.
