Five Rivers MAT – Teaching School

Five Rivers MAT is proud to be a Teaching School, led by Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy. Teaching schools are strong schools led by strong leaders that work with others to provide high-quality training, development and support to new and experienced school staff.

Teaching schools have an important role to play in a school-led system and school improvement. Teaching schools are centres of excellence, taking a more focused role that prioritises:

  • co-ordinating and providing high-quality school-led initial teacher training (ITT)
  • providing high-quality school-to-school support to spread excellent practice, particularly to schools that need it most
  • providing evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across their network
