Research demonstrates that high quality CPD for teachers has a significant positive effect on pupil outcomes and is the most cost-effective way to boost pupil attainment

Our Partnership

Three schools in the Castle Point area joined together in 2014 to form the BTSA (Benfleet Teaching School Alliance):

The Appleton School

The King John School

Kingston Primary School

Following reforms to the teaching school programme, the three lead schools formed the BTSA (Benfleet Team Supporting All) in 2021 with the aim of continuing to deliver on the golden thread of professional development to support all schools within our locality. The BTSA will endeavour to shape and strengthen Initial Teacher Training, deliver the Early Career Framework programme, provide high-quality evidence-based training and build effective and enduring school partnerships to sustain school improvement.

The BTSA works closely with our strategic partners to deliver Initial Teacher Training and the Early Career Framework:

Tes Institute: Provider for Initial Teacher Training

Outstanding Leaders Partnership / Best Practice Network: Provider for Early Career Framework
