All our staff are committed to their own Continuing Professional Development (CPD) through attending regular training courses by a variety of providers. Their performance is regularly monitored  and impact noted, through our rigorous management process to ensure our staff are fully skilled and equipped with the most up-to-date training. Our weekly staff meetings are focused on school improvement and regularly contain an element of training and sharing good practice.


All teachers undergo a thorough induction programme and for those new to a role are assigned experienced mentors.

  • We work closely with Nottingham Trent University alongside their Teacher Training Program with members of teaching staff working on the mentor support program. We invest in unqualified teachers so that they can complete their initial teacher training and achieve related professional qualifications.
  • Our newly and recently qualified teachers enjoy an enhanced training programme linked to Nottingham Trent University
  • Experienced teachers are encouraged to explore their pedagogy by going on external courses, through undertaking further professional qualifications such as MEds and SEND National Award.
  • All teachers are encouraged and supported in developing their leadership skills and qualities, both inside and outside the classroom. 
  • For all of our teachers we run a range of whole day, twilight and lunchtime training sessions covering a wide variety of educational topics.
