Teaching School

In February 2016 Woodstock CE Primary School was designated as a National Teaching School.  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.

In Oxfordshire, there are several Teaching Schools who have joined together to create the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance (OTSA), which Woodstock are part of.

OTSA is a growing partnership of Oxfordshire schools, Oxfordshire County Council, The University of Oxford, Oxford Brookes University and other significant educational organisations. Our vision is that by bringing together the strengths of all OTSA partners we have a unique opportunity to develop a sustainable culture of aspiration, collaboration and excellence leading to a world class education for all young people in Oxfordshire.

Woodstock CE Primary School lead the key area of  School to School Support which has a focus on  improving pupil outcomes and longer term school development, as well as supporting schools facing particular challenges.
