Extended Schools - Wallsend Partnership

is a soft federation of all of the schools serving the Wallsend area. The Head teachers of the 15 schools (2 secondary/13 primary/1 special school) meet regularly to discuss common aims. Each school is also represented by a governor on the federation governance group which meets each term.
By pooling financial resources the partnership have been able to employ staff to work across the schools.
4 of these staff are part of an ‘Intervention Team’ of Higher Level Teaching Assistants. They provide intervention support for Maths and English at KS2 and KS3 based on termly attainment data provided by each school.
3 of the staff are ‘Transition Learning Mentors’ supporting the transition of students from KS2 to KS3. In the spring and summer terms they work in the primary schools and in the autumn term follow the Y6 students who they then support to settle into secondary education.
The work of the partnership is coordinated by a management team comprising 5 of the head teachers supported by the director of Extended Services for Wallsend.
Churchill Family of Schools
comprises Churchill Community College and the 5 primary schools in its locality. Battle Hill / Denbigh / Hadrian Park / Holy Cross / Stephenson Memorial.
The Headteachers of the schools meet each half term to discuss common issues such as communication, transition and extended services.
Personal Achievement Through Learning Support

PALS was created to target Key Stage 4 students, offering;

Full time supervised, statutory education for pupils coming into borough and without a mainstream school.

Full/part-time supervised, statutory education for pupils referred by the North Tyneside Secondary Education Improvement Partnership (EIP) of schools via the Secondary Support Team (SST).

The students are either hard to place owing to their late arrival into the borough or were at the point of permanent exclusion from their host schools.

Since Easter 2012 PALS has accepted students from Year 9.

Aim of PALS

To maximise attainment and progress of mainstream pupils at serious risk of permanent exclusion or who are without a school place.

                      Parents Using Cars

Please can all parents using cars to collect students at the end of the school day, turn off their engines while they are parked up outside of the college on Churchill Street or nearby. This request has come from the council as a reminder about cutting down on air pollution, particularly where there are children around.
