St. Clements Primary School became a designated Teaching School in February 2015. Following this, the Rivers Teaching School Alliance was founded in May 2015.
The Alliance was formed primarily to lead the way in raising standards through school to school support and to empower and develop teachers at all stages of their careers through high quality training and professional development.
The last 4 years has seen us go from strength to strength as, together with our strategic partners, we have delivered a wide range of successful training opportunities,supported and trained many school direct trainees through their teacher training, built a strong team of Specialist Leaders of Education, and supported schools to develop leadership capacity and secure improved outcomes for pupils. We also are a registered body for NQTs.
The Teaching School is led by Catherine Atkinson, ably supported by Amanda Haynes (Office Manager) Natalie Lea (Admin Support) and Gail Sheldon (Business Admin Apprentice.)
