This is a formal partnership which has been established between 32 Rushcliffe Primary Schools. It is based on the principal of sharing good practice between our schools for the benefit of all of our children.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an important aspect of our work. There are over twenty five different CPD groups who meet termly to share good practice and improve the teaching and learning opportunities for children in our schools. Working together means we can also invite external providers to develop our thinking. The RLA not only facilitates our teachers, teaching assistants and head teachers working together but our Office Managers, Site Managers, Governors and Senior Midday Supervisors also meet regularly to develop good practice. More details can be found on the RLA website www.rushcliffelearningalliance.co.uk
Procurement is another significant aspect to the RLA. This benefits all of our schools giving us much more buying power to secure the best financial deals.
Quality Assurance is an important aspect of our work. This enables schools to work together to evaluate the teaching and learning provided in each others schools to ensure that we support and challenge each other to be the best we can be.
The Rushcliffe Learning Alliance Pupil Parliament (RLAPP) allows two representatives from each of the RLA schools to meet termly at County Hall to hold meetings with local councillors to make sure that the children of Rushcliffe have a way of expressing their points of view about things that are important to them.
