Confederations

Spelthorne Schools Together Confederation

Spelthorne Schools Together is a large confederation of the secondary and primary schools across Spelthorne. The Headteachers of these schools meet on a termly basis to develop innovative programmes and events for students across Spelthorne. Thomas Knyvett College is heavily involved in this network and often takes an active lead and hosts events. We believe that partnership working provides many additional opportunities for our staff and students.

The staff and governors have benefited from our engagement with the network. Newly Qualified teachers (NQTs) enjoy attending training and network sessions at other schools, Governors have undertaken strategic planning training, and our SENCO works closely with her colleagues across the area. The SENCO network is very important and supports sharing good practice and the effective transition between primary and secondary school for our more vulnerable students.

Via the Spelthorne Schools Together network our students have directly benefited from cyber bullying prevention workshops, summer schools, speech and language support and literacy programmes.

The network has also facilitated excellent parenting programmes which have supported our parents in their management of the often challenging teenage years!
