A message from the Head of Ashton on Mersey Teaching School

Developments within The Dean Trust Teaching School continue to evolve at an ever quickening pace. Our contribution to improving the quality of outcomes for all pupils and staff is clearly evident and acknowledged both regionally and nationally. Throughout this short half term, we were delighted to have appointed a new Executive Board member to our Trust, Mr Andy Shakos, please see his pen profile on page 2. Also, our Trust continues to grow with Dean Trust Wigan and UKFast Dean Trust Manchester being the latest two additions to our family of schools.

I was honoured to be asked to contribute to the development of the new Apprenticeship Trailblazers of both the Teaching Assistant and Teaching Apprentices. We are now finalising the assessment for both apprenticeships, which we hope will be offered in September. Within this edition, you will also read about our attendance at the House of Lords, updates on current training opportunities and SCITT developments. Thank you once again for your interest in our Teaching School and for taking the time to read about our recent activities.
