Welcome to the Darwin Teaching School

Welcome to the Darwin Teaching School website.  Working with our strategic partners, we offer a range of professional development opportunities for headteachers, teachers, teaching assistants and support staff that work in schools.  If you would like to be added to our mailing list for courses please contact us on darwin@woodfield.shropshire.sch.uk 

Teaching schools are outstanding schools that work with others to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff. They are part of the government’s plan to give schools a central role in raising standards by developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system.

By March 2016, the Government’s aim is to have a network of 600 teaching schools making significant improvements in the quality of teaching, leadership and pupil attainment.

Teaching School Alliances are led by a teaching school and include schools that are benefiting from support, as well as strategic partners who lead some aspects of training and development.

The Darwin Teaching School Alliance is led by Woodfield Infant School in Shrewsbury.  We work closely with our partner schools.  We
 
aim  to create a 'self-improving' and 'self-sustaining' system which nurtures excellence and best practice.

Visit the National College website for more information about Teaching Schools and Teaching School Alliances.
