Welcome to Shanidar Teaching School Alliance
We are a group of schools in Bradford with a core purpose to provide excellent, inclusive education through training research and collaboration.
We aim to lead the education community by establishing a centre of excellence in special educational needs, disability and inclusive education. This builds on the achievements of the District Achievement Partnership in Bradford in providing expert teachers and specialist support staff to improve outcomes for young people.
We want to provide high quality training to teachers and support staff to meet the needs of children and young people with SEND effectively across mainstream and specialist provision. We will equip our workforce with the skills and expertise, increasing opportunities for young people to succeed and improve their life chances.
Through successful collaboration with our partners, we want to find and spread the best evidence-based practice in SEND across Bradford and West Yorkshire. We champion inclusive education for all pupils and challenge discrimination.
