Pickwick Teaching Alliance
Ivy Lane is a member of Pickwick Teaching Alliance alongside a number of other schools. The alliance believes partnership and collaboration is the best way to continually develop and improve teaching and learning for children, teachers and the communities in which we live and work. By working together and learning from each other, the aim is to improve standards and life experiences for all pupils and adults within the alliance.
School Partnership Programme (SPP)
The alliance is committed to self-sustaining school-to-school improvement. Six schools within the alliance are taking part in The Education Development Trust's School Partnership Programme (SPP), which encourages schools to connect with each other on a local and national level to share their expertise and drive improvement across the school system.
The SPP seeks to embed a culture of high quality self-evaluation, peer review and school-led support and challenge, both within and between schools. This co-constructed approach builds on and goes beyond inspection frameworks, and encourages collaboration across schools to learn from each other in order to create an excellent self-improving school-led system.
The following PLTSA schools are taking part in the programme:
- Corsham Primary School
- Malmesbury Primary School
- Sea Mills Primary School
- Two Mile Hill Primary School
- Ivy Lane Primary School
