Press Release – February 2022

An Education Alliance for Yorkshire & the Humber

Riding Forward Education Alliance, formerly  Riding Forward Teaching School, is a training and support school based at Molescroft Primary School, Beverley.  The Strategic Partners are:  Snaith Primary, The East Riding of Yorkshire LA, Tidal Education Alliance (Hull)  and Yorkshire Wolds Teacher Training.

The schools of the East Riding and neighbouring areas are brimming with the most amazing practice, innovation and talent.  We believe that there is an opportunity to be seized through the TSA to create the initiative for educational development.

Riding Forward Education Alliance aims to:

 Be innovative and to celebrate and share what works and will work to raise standards and inspire pupils learning.

Be innovative in the discovery and piloting of exciting new ideas and approaches to teaching and learning.

Work with partners to design the solutions to our problems; to enable teachers who have special talents and great ideas; supporting them to present their solutions and therefore help others.

Work with schools, leaders, teachers, and new trainees to motivate and nurture a new generation of teachers.

Support great teaching, to re-establish and recognise what great schools are and promote this. 

The Alliance also recognises that every setting is different and that imposed initiatives rarely fit all.

Following a brief demonstration at the Autumn term leadership seminar, we are pleased to confirm that the ‘Teach East Riding’ site is now live. The site was commissioned by the East Riding School Improvement Partnership (ERSIP) in response to feedback from school regarding challenges in recruitment of teachers and other education professionals. The site is intended to be used by all East Riding schools and academies to promote opportunities to teach and train to teach and highlight the benefits of living and working in the East Riding.
