The best outcomes for Bradford
Bradford Birth to 19 is a large and growing, successful Teaching School Alliance which works with over 80 schools in the Bradford area. We are committed to partnership work and collaboration between our partner schools – private nurseries and nursery, primary, special and secondary schools drawn from across the district. Working with such diverse partners – rural and inner city schools – is one of the keys to our success. We welcome new partners in the Bradford area and from across the country.

St Edmund’s Nursery School was designated by the National College for Teaching and Leadership as a National Teaching School in April 2013. It is one of a close partnership of teaching schools in Bradford.
St Edmund’s became a School Centre for Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) in 2014 with a small cohort of trainees. In 2015/16, we trained over 100 early years, primary and secondary school student teachers who are now working in schools within the Bradford area. In August 2016 we welcomed our third cohort of trainees.
In partnership with Bradford's best schools and most inspirational teachers, we support the development of Bradford’s future teachers in an entirely school-based and school-designed training programme.
St Edmund’s Nursery School has received recognition for the outstanding provision offered since 2006, being graded Outstanding by Ofsted as a nursery school, early years provider and children's centre.
