Sheringham Primary National Teaching School has been designated since March 2012. With Sheringham Primary as the lead school, we have an alliance of schools across Norfolk all collaborating to give children the best education.
The alliance has supported numerous schools in Norfolk and neighbouring counties with school improvement and to raise outcomes for all our children. We support school staff from TAs to headteachers with a comprehensive and highly effective package of Professional Learning programmes. This includes the very successful Lead Teacher Support programme, Headteacher Support programme and TA Support programme.
We regularly update and add to our Professional Learning opportunities, which now include coaching programmes and our new teaching and learning programme, Great Teaching-Great learning. We recruit and place student teachers in schools across Norfolk providing support and enhanced training opportunities in the crucial ITT year.
We have also successfully supported many schools with a range of different needs through formal and informal school to school support packages.
We actively promote schools engaging with action research and exploring new ways to support our children in their learning journeys.
We are always looking for new schools to join the alliance and get involved as both a giver and receiver of support, strengthening the school led system.
There are opportunities for school staff to be involved in many different ways from engaging with research projects to becoming a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) or a facilitator. Schools can offer placements for students or future leaders. Headteachers and leaders can formally or informally support other school leaders through coaching, mentoring or sharing strengths and best practice.
