The website of each school can be reached by clicking on the school name above.
We work together in many ways. The children come together to work and we take part in music, dance and sports events together. The teachers support each other and work together on a regular basis. The Head teachers and Deputy Head teachers work together every half term and curriculum groups also meet regularly to discuss teaching and learning across our schools in key subjects.
The SENCos from each school also meet termly to discuss children across the family and to allocate funding as necessary. The SENCos are led by our Family SENCO Carol O'Connor, who is based at The Lanes but works across all of our schools.
Each year, a Challenge Partners team of reviewers quality assures and assesses our school's effectiveness. This means that senior leaders from other schools, led by a lead reviewer, work together with our school leaders with the goal of identifying and improving good practice. Through collaboration, challenge and professional development, the Challenge Partners network aims to ensure every school can benefit from the combined wisdom of the education system. Our most recent Challenge Partners Quality Assurance Review report can be found below:
