Learning Middlesbrough is here to support children and their schools to achieve, ensuring that every child and young person in Middlesbrough receives an exceptional education.
Learning Middlesbrough supports children and young people by uniting partnership organisations to positively shape education in Middlesbrough, and enhancing learning opportunities for children and young people.
Our group – comprising teaching schools, schools, Middlesbrough Achievement Partnership (MAP), and Middlesbrough Council – aims to improve the quality of education available to children and young people by:
- challenging schools to surpass their previous best
- breaking down barriers to learning
- supporting the training of high quality teachers and leaders.
Learning Middlesbrough’s school improvement programme has three key objectives:
1) Increase the capacity in leadership, ensuring that leaders at all levels are effective and able to support one another.
2) Improve the quality of teaching and learning in all schools by coaching, mentoring, and quality assuring practice.
3) Engage the community, informing and thus improving the public perception of education in Middlesbrough.
A key element of our role is supporting schools to develop and excel, regardless of their current level of achievement, through funded projects in the following categories:
Champions of key themes vital to improving learning, such as, assessment and data, English, leadership, and maths.
Schools (individually or partnered together) which undertake research into teaching, learning, and/or leadership.
The Local Delivery Team
