Just Imagine

Just Imagine and Bristol Primary Teaching School

The Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance is currently made up of three lead schools in the city who have been awarded Teaching School status: Ashley Down Primary Federation, Whitehall Primary and Bridge Farm Primary. However, we work much more broadly, with over 40 Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) and Local Leaders of Education (LLEs) from a wide range of primary and special schools across the city who work together to support Bristol’s schools and their children.  We work as a hub for schools who wish to work together and provide a single point of contact for a high quality school led system of support for our city.  We work alongside leaders from Bristol Local Authority and the Primary Heads’ Association of Bristol (PHAB) to ensure we are able to respond to local and national priorities quickly and effectively. The Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance is a nationally accredited NPQ provider and runs a range of initial teacher training programmes, having trained more than 100 new teachers into the profession over the last few years.  We also plan and deliver a broad range of training and development programmes for teachers at all stages of their career, school leaders and support staff.  We are passionate about working collaboratively and in developing and sharing excellent and innovative practice in order to improve outcomes for children in the city and beyond.

The Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance provides a vehicle for the promotion and development of what is currently working well and could be shared more widely, as well as a forum for new alliances and collaborations to form and develop.  We welcome other interested parties to be partners to ensure a strong and cohesive message and a breadth of support – including the Just Imagine team!
