As a teaching school, we have the exciting opportunity to play a key role in school improvement across Lincolnshire and beyond. It has been a busy few months as we, alongside our partner schools, have planned and developed how this work will be undertaken.
On 22nd March over 20 delegates from schools and business joined us for a discussion around the vision and values of our future work. We were fortunate to enlist the help of Maggie Farrar, former interim Chief Executive of the National College, to facilitate and shape our discussions. It was a fantastic afternoon, with lots of excellent discussion and ideas.
One of Charter’s key roles is co-ordinating and providing high-quality initial teacher training. This year we have enhanced our relationship with Bishop Grosseteste University to both promote teaching as a career and provide in-school placements for trainee teachers. It has been both refreshing and rewarding to have worked with so many motivated people, full of enthusiasm and ideas about making a difference in the classroom.
It is important for Charter to work in partnership with the other teaching schools in Lincolnshire. We are delighted to join Lincolnshire Teaching Schools Together, a coalition of all the teaching schools within Lincolnshire.
