On September 1st 2011 Elmridge Primary School became one of the first 100 schools to be appointed a Teaching School. This designation, granted to Outstanding schools, follows the Government White Paper (2010) which set out the principles of a self-improving school system to be led and facilitated through Teaching Schools.

By 2014 there will be a network of 500 outstanding teaching school alliances driving significant improvement in schools.

A Teaching School's role is to:-

  1. play a greater role in training new entrants into the profession
  2. lead peer-to-peer professional and leadership development
  3. identify and develop leadership potential
  4. provide support for other schools
  5. designate and broker Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs)
  6. engage in research and development

Elmridge gained its Teaching School status in partnership/job-share with St Chads CofE, in Oldham.  Elmridge and St Chads joined together to work in a collaborative manner, sharing a vision "Give, Gain, Grow" .

Further information on Teaching Schools is available on the National College Website
