Teaching Schools act as a vehicle to drive school improvement.
St Francis Xavier Teaching School plays a lead role in the co-ordination of school-to-school support on behalf of the SFX alliance. By working closely with, and responding to the requests of local authorities, dioceses & schools, support can be brokered by the Teaching School for schools and academies in challenging circumstances to bring about improvement.
In some cases the Teaching School will apply for DFE funding on behalf of the supported school to bring about change, exactly what change is individual to each organisation. As an alliance we are committed that the best leaders are working to improve the quality of teaching and leadership where it is most needed.
