School collaboration and partnership is the future.
It may even be the key to your school's survival.
Whether you are an outstanding secondary school aspiring to Teaching School status, an academy converter, or a small primary school seeking the benefits of economies of scale, partnership with other schools has huge benefits. As local authorities continue to retreat, increasingly schools need to rely on each other to provide mutual support and challenge and to maximise value from scarce resources.
But where do you start? How do partnerships work? What are your options? How do you build up the essential trust? And how do you assess and evaluate the impact of your partnership when it is up and running? Who pays for what? What about safeguarding? The questions are many and complex.
The School Partnerships Handbook is a practical and relevant resource for headteachers, leadership teams, school business managers and other professionals involved in the development of partnerships between schools. Each chapter includes a number of proformas and templates, including job descriptions, partnership protocols, briefing papers for governing bodies, examples of articles of governance, safeguarding schedules and timetable solutions.
This highly practical resource is relevant to all schools and includes specific information for secondary schools, sixth form centres, academies and further education colleges. The School Partnerships Handbook will provide your school with the information and resources it needs to create and maintain successful partnerships.
All printable resources, information pages and templates are included on an attached files.
