Working in collaborative partnerships, sharing effective practice and developing collective school improvement systems are the approaches that the Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance seeks to establish.
Teaching Schools are one way the government hopes to make school improvement school led. However in Bristol, there are already highly effective and well established networks, federations and alliances that are leading the way in school improvement.
The Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance therefore, hopes to provide a vehicle for the promotion and development of what is currently working well and could be shared more widely, as well as a forum for new alliances and collaborations to form and develop based on the issues and concerns of Bristol schools and in response to national initiatives. There are also many schools who have excellent practice to share but who do not have a city wide forum to promote their practice and many schools with similar priorities and challenges who do not have colleagues to problem solve and join with.
The Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance hopes to establish a hub for schools that wish to work together in this way, either on a regular basis or on single issue pieces of work or CPD. The Alliance seeks to complement the work of the Early Years Teaching School, to work with the secondary Teaching School at St Mary Redcliffe as well as alongside the LA, PHAB and other local teaching schools in the area.
The Alliance is currently made up of three schools who have been awarded Teaching School status: Ashley Down Primary School (awarded Teaching School status in 2013); Whitehall Primary and Bridge Farm Primary (awarded Teaching School status in 2014) and Fair Furlong Primary (a strategic partner school).
