CASL

Cumbria Alliance of System Leaders

An Alliance of Alliances to 'Lead Beyond Authority'

Vision

With a shared sense of moral purpose, we seek the best learning opportunities for all children and young people. The Partnership of System Leaders in Cumbria will recognise and draw upon existing good to outstanding practice and use this expertise to work towards good and outstanding learning for pupils and adults alike.

Aims

To form a distributed, self-improving system designed to:

  • undertake a systematic analysis and assessment of the learning needs of schools and localities.
  • Co-ordinate school to school support in partnership with the LA, NationalCollege and other school improvement agencies.
  • Develop leadership potential and succession planning at all levels from Initial Teacher Education to System Leadership and associated continued professional development.

As a school, we have committed to actively participate in the work of CASL and LASL South.

Teaching School Alliance

We are a strategic partner in the South Lakes Rural Partnership Teaching School.

Schools work together within a Teaching School Alliance - a group of schools and other partners that is supported by the leadership of a teaching school. Our teaching school is Burton Morewood School. We are a strategic partner, which means that we lead on aspects of delivery.

This year, we are leading on a research project looking at 'narrowing the gap' in attainment between different groups of pupils.
