National Teaching School
We are very proud to have been designated as a National Teaching School.
Teaching schools give outstanding schools a leading role in the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and headteachers, as well as contributing to the raising of standards through school-to-school support.
There are only 460 teaching schools in the country (out of 27,000 schools).
Brompton-on-Swale CE Primary School was designated in September 2013. Initially a 4 year contract, the school has formed a strong and developing collaboration with other schools in the area (imaginatively named "The Swaledale Alliance"!) and facilitates developmental activities for a range of stakeholders across the area.
In our first year, the alliance formed partnerships with 17 local schools. Now, 2 years later, 60 schools are partnership schools from across the northern part of North Yorkshire and Darlington.
