Merton Special Teaching Alliance
Poplar is delighted to be in alliance with Merton Special Teaching School Alliance as a Merton School Partner.
The Teaching alliance was originally formed by Perseid School and Cricket Green School in 2012. In 2014 MSTA expanded its remit to include Merton School Partners. These Partners are:
- Poplar Primary School
- Bishop Gilpin Primary School
- Ricards Lodge High School
As well as offering training for other local schools, Poplar currently has 1 ‘Primary expert teacher’: Mrs Sarah Campbell offers support and expertise to Merton teachers in the areas of Literacy and the Arts.
Our Headteacher, Mrs Katharine Davies, has worked in Merton in Senior Leadership for over 25 years and is a Merton Leader of Education – supporting other headteachers and schools in the Merton borough.
