Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance (OTSA)

Windmill Primary School is a Strategic Partner school in the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance (OTSA).

Teaching schools are part of the Government's drive to give schools more freedom and to enable Head Teachers to take increasing responsibility for managing the education system.

The OTSA is a partnership of Oxfordshire schools, Oxfordshire County Council, The Univercity of Oxford, The Univercity of Reading, Oxford Brookes Univercity and other significant edicational organisations. 

Our vision is that by bringing together the strengths of all OTAS partners we have a unique opportunity to develop a sustainable culture of aspiration, collaboration and excellence leading to a world class education for all young people in Oxfordshire.

The OTSA is working in the following key areas; Initial Teacher Training, Research and Development, School to School Support, CPD and Leadership Development, Succesion Planning and Talent Managment, Special Educational Needs and Disability. NQT Induction and Profesional Learning Networks.

Strategic Partner schools take responsibility for delivering a specific area of work within at least one key area in which they have particular expertise, while Partner Schools contribute to, or participate in, at least one of these areas.
