Foundations For Learning


All three nursery schools in our Federation are recognised as “outstanding” by Ofsted and we were therefore eligible to apply for National Teaching School status by the Government’s National College for Teaching and Leadership and were successfully designated in 2014. Teaching schools are outstanding schools that work with others to provide high quality training and development to new and experienced school staff and support trainee teachers in gaining their Qualified Teacher status. They are part of the Government’s initiative to create a self-improving system by giving schools a central role in raising standards.

To enable us to carry out this role effectively we have created a network with other outstanding educational establishments in Berkshire to form an Early Years teaching school alliance.  We are known as Foundations for Learning.   Over the past three years we have been able to share and harness expertise for the benefit of children and staff from other local schools, nurseries and settings.
