The Chelmsford Teaching Schools Alliance (CTSA) was established in March 2013 when Newlands Spring Primary School Academy Trust became a National Teaching School. The CTSA aims to provide a range of services to support staff, governors and schools. The CTSA will endeavour to support all of our alliance schools to aspire towards outstanding teaching and learning, through a climate of mutual collaboration. There are currently 26 primary, 9 secondary and 2 special schools based in and around Chelmsford in Essex.
Gosfield Community Primary School is a member of the Colne Valley Consortium, made up of 12 primaries and one secondary school in the Hedingham area. This group is proactive, innovative and highly regarded in Essex. We share curriculum experiences, music and sporting festivals, arts events, staff and governor training and good educational practice. As well as the Headteachers working together staff can work together on projects and joint staff training. Chairs of the Governing Bodies also meet termly to discuss matters of common interest to do with the role of governors in schools.
