South Liverpool Schools Together

South Liverpool Learning Network

Hello Everyone! - whilst we are all working in a very different way at the moment I want firstly to send out a 'huge thank you' to all of the 'hubs' who are continuing to support pupils and their families/carers and communities and of course all of the teaching staff who are all doing amazing work ..... as ever!  

I would like to add to our SLST website any FREE resources /websites which may help to support our hubs/schools/communities at this time - by now, of course, you may already be aware of many of these and I know that there is a lot of support, networking and sharing of information/resources taking place, but I hope that this will also help in some small way with any resources easily accessible in one place on our SLST website - Home Learning and Resources page.


A link below will simply take you to a new page I have created with links to resources/websites which might help continue to support staff and pupils both attending 'hubs' and at home - whilst, of course, we also remember that all of our pupils still take some time for some fun and exercise 

  • Click the link below which will take you to a whole set of FREE home learning resources - I will keep adding as appropriate over the coming weeks.
  • Home Learning & Resources


Keep inspiring, sharing and taking care of yourselves and your families/communities.


Best wishes to all.

The aims of the network include:-

  • To focus on raising the standards of teaching and learning across the Network Schools
  • To provide strategic management and leadership support for Headteachers and Leaders in the Network
  • To develop a joint CPD plan for network schools to address training and development needs involving groups of schools in the network
  • To foster collaborative links between schools in the Network and to facilitate the sharing of good practice

The network is managed via the SLLN Development Sub-group made up of 7 Headteachers from the Learning Network schools.    One Headteacher acts as SLLN Chair - L. Gibson  for 2019/2020.

The full group of headteachers usually meet every half term.    The Sub-group meet every half term approximately 2 weeks before the full meeting. 

The SLLN Administrator is Andrea Dearden - who provides support for servicing meetings and organising CPD and events.   The administrator actively seeks best value options for CPD and events on behalf of the network; organises and services termly full Headteacher meetings/briefings; assists in facilitating network opportunities with the network and provides a channel of communication between member schools as well as liaising with the Senior School Improvement Officer for Collaboration and Networking, Judy Boyce, as well as other LA officers.
