Anglian Gateway Teaching School Alliance
Bottisham Village College is a founding member of the The Anglian Gateway Teaching School Alliance. This is a truly cross-phase, collaborative alliance, centred in the Bottisham, Burwell and Soham locality and working North/North East into Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. Our catchment is largely rural, reflecting different socio-economic contexts and areas of significant rural deprivation.
Established in April 2013, the Anglian Gateway Teaching School Alliance is a growing network of schools from a widespread area, representing every phase of our education system, from early years to year 13.
We are committed to using the best practice of our outstanding leaders and teachers to successfully deliver these six strands.
Talent management and succession planning drive every aspect of our work; developing the strengths, resources and creativity of all our teachers to ensure the progress and well-being of the pupils and students in our alliance.
The development of training teachers in this crucial initial stage of their professional development and engaging in high-quality, tailored CPD and leadership training, are at the heart of what we do.
Classroom-based research and development offers a wealth of opportunities to all teachers, whatever their career stage.School to school support, including the designation and brokering of Specialist Leaders of Education, allows us to identify and co-ordinate the expertise and outstanding practice within our growing alliance.
As a Teaching School we will have the freedom and autonomy to work collaboratively with our partners to deliver high quality support for teachers and leaders at all stages in their career.
We will be involved in the following areas:
- providing a strong supply of high quality new teachers through the development of schoolbased
- initial teacher training programmes
- providing high quality continuing professional development programmes that significantly improve the quality of serving teachers and support staff
- developing great leaders and the next generation of headteachers
- working with schools in need of additional support
