The Tyndale Cluster
This school is a partner in a group of six small rural primary schools in the South Gloucestershire area – The Tyndale Cluster. This enables us to share expertise and experience, and bid for further funding to purchase resources and training for staff, parents, governors and children. The Cluster helps us maintain and improve the quality of education delivered to our children within our own community by providing mutual support.
The Cluster organizes activities where pupils come together to work on a common project or topic.
The Schools in The Tyndale Cluster are
- Coaley C .of E. Primary School,
- Hillesley C .of E. Primary School,
- Kingswood County Primary School,
- North Nibley C .of E. Primary School,
- Slimbridge County Primary School,
- Stone-with-Woodford C .of E. Primary School.
Staff and governors from these schools meet regularly to develop and review curricular practice including schemes of work, and to discuss management issues particularly related to the small school. Some joint resources have been purchased and every school in the group has found considerable benefit from the association, which provides broader perspectives from a wider group of experienced professionals to every group member.
