What is a Teaching School?

Teaching Schools are part of the governments drive to give schools more freedom and to enable schools to take increasing responsibility for managing the education system.

In 2011 St Werburghs Park Nursery School became part of the Bristol Early Years Teaching Consortium (BEYTC) together with St Pauls Nursery School & Children’s Centre and Redcliffe Children’s Centre & Nursery School.

More recently we have been awarded National Teaching School Status.

We are an Outstanding setting with:

  • National Early Years Training Centres accreditation
  • Head Teachers who are Local Leaders of Education (LLEs) and National Leaders of Education (NLEs)
  • Staff teams which include Advanced Skills Teachers, Specialist Leaders in Education and Network Lead Teachers
  • Proven track record of delivering training to leaders and practitioners that makes a differnce to ethos and practice
