working together for all our children
Sheffield-based Teaching School Alliance
Five Rivers Teaching School Alliance is based in the North East of Sheffield. Working in collaboration with schools, teaching schools and universities across Sheffield, Yorkshire and beyond, we provide sector-led improvement through delivery of initial teacher training, continuous professional development and school to school support.
With years of experience teaching pupils with English as an additional language and / or high levels of deprivation, our SLEs, LLEs and NLEs have a specialist understanding in this area. We have a proven track record of raising attainment for pupils in this context.
We aim to dispel the myths about learners with English as an additional language and learners in areas of disadvantage to improve recruitment for schools in these areas by equipping teachers (including trainee teachers) with the skills and knowledge they need to work with both disadvantaged and bilingual learners.
Join the Alliance
We are always looking to collaborate with new schools and partners to help improve the quality of education for learners across the region. Please do not hesitate to contact Five Rivers Teaching School Alliance if you wish to work with us to improve outcomes for children in Sheffield and beyond.
