    Welcome to the Teaching School Hub

    HACH TS Hub Logo 350x100

    The Harris Academy Chafford Hundred Teaching School Hub is one of six Teaching School Hubs nationally. Our Hub, which is based at Harris Academy Chafford Hundred in Essex, is responsible for the following Local Authority Districts: Basildon, Brentwood, Castle Point, Maldon, Rochford, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock.

    Our Vision 

    As a leading school in the Harris Federation we believe in excellence, every day, for every child. To achieve this aim, the Chafford Hundred Teaching School Hub will work closely with the Department for Education to deliver on the golden thread of professional development for all the schools in our designated area of Southend, South Essex And Thurrock. 

    Evidence informed practice* tells us that that the quality of teaching is the single biggest variable in student achievement, outside the students themselves, and it is also the variable most susceptible to the impact of good or poor leadership. We will use our influence and resources to build and sustain a growth environment for the region, that provides the very best in initial teacher training, newly qualified teacher induction, early career support and CPD pathways to retain and develop expertise for the entire workforce including national professional qualifications for school leaders, headteachers and executive leaders in multi-academy trusts. 

    Our vision is to strengthen school improvement through effective partnerships across every school in our region. We believe in system-led change, led by schools for schools. Our strategy is to simplify access to high-quality ITT, AB, ECF and NPQ providers and increase school engagement with Curriculum Hubs, Research Schools and the EEF. Our position as a hub, will enable us to deliver new opportunities at scale for the whole region, whilst sustaining a local focus on our local needs. It is our ambition for all teachers and leaders to be able to receive centralized support from the Teaching School Hub at any point in their career. 

    Our success will be measured by our schools and pupils that succeed. By investing in our people and making informed choices, we hope that they will learn and live well.

    Our Priorities for 2020-21

    1) Raise awareness of the TSH, through regular and effective communication with all stakeholders, uniting regional schools, through the golden thread of teacher and leader development.

    2) To build and sustain a growth environment where schools can retain and develop expertise in quality-first teaching and evidence-informed practice.

    3) To strengthen and simplify system leadership by providing access to and delivery of high-quality CPD that meets local needs.
