Teaching School



Warren Junior Teaching School is an outstanding school offering teacher training positions for Primary and Special by providing high quality training for teachers of the future through School Direct.

This designation is in recognition of the exemplary practice and standards at the school and the long standing track record of developing and supporting the practice of other schools, teachers and school leaders. Warren Junior School works in conjunction with its Strategic Partners, the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and Goldsmiths University to provide professional development to other schools. The designation gives outstanding schools a leading role in the training and professional development of school staff (from initial teacher training all the way through to senior leaders and headteachers). Teaching Schools also help to raise standards by supporting other schools, and use their knowledge and experience to help shape and develop the wider education system.

Our aims as a Teaching School are to share and develop the very best practice and enable schools to work together and learn from each other to ensure children in our communities have the most inspirational education.
