SPTA Awarded Teaching School Status

8th March 2012

Green Lane Primary Academy is one of only 100 schools in England to be granted teaching school status – a new designation entitling it to lead the training and professional development for staff.

It was selected by the National College for School Leadership which had about 1,200 expressions of interest in the first recruitment round.

The milestone marks a shift towards school-centred training and development. Teaching schools will be responsible for leading a group of schools, working with other partners including at least one university, to deliver high quality support for teachers and leaders at all stages in their career.
