IOE Principal Partner Testimonial 

"Wyvil Primary School takes great pride in being the first organisation to achieve IOE Principal Partner status. The partnership enables the school to construct a cohesive offer by which professional development needs can be matched to the priorities of the school. The status also supports career paths and gaining recognised qualifications as well as enabling a number of staff to work with the IOE as associates delivering licensed courses at local venues.  We have entered the field of research and development with our staff participating in projects that are quality assured by the IOE.  We are delighted that the IOE has become integral to the Lambeth Teaching School Alliance."
