Bourne Westfield Primary Academy has been selected to become a National Teaching School.

Teaching schools take a leading role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession, identifying leadership potential and providing support for other schools.

Bourne Westfield is one of 61 schools in England to be granted teaching school status in the latest round.

Introduced in 2011, teaching schools are all rated as “outstanding”. They work with partner schools in an alliance to ensure high quality school-led initial teacher training and professional development opportunities for teachers at all stages of their career.

They raise standards through supporting other schools, engage in research and development, and ensure the most talented school leaders are spotted and supported to become headteachers.

Headteacher Elaine Radley said: “This is a great opportunity to work with our partner schools to support education across the South of Lincolnshire and we are looking forward to developing practice together.”

The National College for Teaching and Leadership has responsibility, in partnership with headteachers from the Teaching Schools Council, for the designation and of the teaching schools programme.

Chief executive Charlie Taylor said: “Bourne Westfield should be very proud of this achievement. The school has been recognised as a centre of excellence in its area, with an outstanding performance and a track record of raising standards.”
