The Alliance

Birmingham Nursery Schools Teaching Schools Alliance (‘the Alliance’) is a collaboration of the 27 Birmingham Nursery Schools to provide expertise in Early Years education.

There are 4 Teaching Schools within the organisation:

  • Kings Norton Nursery School and Camp Lane Children’s Centre (Lead School)
  • Allens Croft Nursery School Children’s Centre
  • Adderley Nursery School and Children’s Centre
  • St Thomas Centre Nursery School and Children’s Centre

and 23 National Support schools of which Selly Oak Nursery School is one

The Alliance works collaboratively to provide support and expertise in 6 core areas:

  • School-Led Initial Teacher Training (SCITT)
  • Continuing Professional Development
  • Supporting Other Schools (School to School Support)
  • Identifying and Developing Leadership Potential
  • Specialist Leaders in Education
  • Research and Development

As an organisation, the Alliance works independently and also in partnership with other Teaching Schools, the Local Authority, Birmingham Education Partnership, Ofsted and the Department for Education.

A primary activity of the Alliance is the undertaking of deployments to support schools requiring improvement, schools in challenging circumstances and those who have an appetite to improve and learn from others.
