silversmith TSA4 

 Silversmith TSA aims to be an active partner in the ''by schools for schools" educational culture. We will work together collectively, to shape the future of education in primary schools, for our young children in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and beyond.

Welcome to Silversmith Teaching School Alliance 

Silversmith TSA is a primary and early year’s specialist in outstanding teaching and learning based at Dobcroft Infant School in South West Sheffield. Our aim is to provide and support the development and delivery of training and best practice in education through collaboration with our partners and providing school-to-school support. We work closely with the other Sheffield based TSAs in projects such as preparing to deliver high quality leadership training such as NPQSL and NPQML. We are currently providing capacity to two SSIF 2 bids through NLE/SLE support working to improve contextualised grammar in KS2 and develop inference in reading. We are part of a recent SSIF 3 bid with the focus on improving outcomes in early years. We are a designated centre of excellence for early years; our brief is to provide support and training to enhance the outcomes within Sheffield and the EYFS.
