PartnershipsEvery school and academy is valued for its children and families, community, staff and governors.  Each has something of worth to offer beyond its own boundaries.  Each, at some point in time, will need and benefit from support and encouragement from beyond its own environment.

Schools and academies work together in many ways both formally and informally. 

The Education Team seeks to identify strong partnerships of mutual benefit to those involved.  It provides a variety of opportunities to bring colleagues together to share practice, explore different possibilities and discuss current challenges and developments in education.

Formal partnerships

Brokering school to school support through Teaching School Alliances and local authorities.

Creating leadership capacity through federation and collaboration.

Identifying the right multi-academy trust to support schools in crisis through the Academy Strategy.
