Welcome to Ashbourne Dove Valley Teaching School Alliance
In August 2015, Osmaston C of E Primary School was designated as 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, not least by exemplifying excellent standards of teaching.
Osmaston, as the lead school, has formed the 'Ashbourne Dove Valley Teaching School Alliance' with QEGS, Hilltop School and St. Oswald's School as immediate strategic partners. Other strategic partners are Derby University, Derby Diocese, Derbyshire Local Authority and The National College of Teaching and Learning. This is the first Teaching School Alliance in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales and benefits schools in the area who choose to join the Alliance.
Visions and Values
ADVTSA aims to develop good and outstanding practice across all our schools; so creating a culture which places children at the heart of everything we do. This is achieved through school to school support, a high quality CPD programme, leadership and management development and initial Teacher Training. It is our mission to ensure that we continue to raise outcomes for all children and young people in our locality.
