Heronsgate Professional Development for Primary School Teachers

At Heronsgate Primary School, we are passionate about enabling children and staff to realise their potential.

We consider high quality professional development to be vital
in raising standards in teaching and ultimately the progress of all our pupils and would like to share our approaches and practice with all schools.

Our ‘outstanding’ training programme which ‘inspires’ staff (Ofsted) is delivered by experienced practitioners at our Thamesmead campus and we are proud to be an Apple Regional Training Centre.

Below is our course list for 2017-2018 and details of how to book.
