Covid Recovery

The school year 2020/21 will be substantially affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.  All Minster Teaching School Alliance work will be flexible and adapt to the changing situation. This will include CPD events being hosted online in the first instance. We will endeavour to respond to need and keep you informed of arrangements throughout the year as we adapt to the situation, at the same time as continuing to support school improvement.

One of the core strands of the Minster Teaching School is offering a range of school-based Professional Learning opportunities. We run programmes for teachers, teaching assistants, middle and senior leaders, support staff, and governors, as well as programmes that address particular themes such as mental health and safeguarding.
