Partnerships for learning

About partnership working

Creating strong partnerships with a range of organisations helps to deliver a more personalised learning experience for every child and young person.

Engaging parents and families

Learners benefit when practitioners develop positive partnerships with parents and families by involving them in decisions affecting their children's education and learning.

Creating successful partnerships

Establishments and partnerships have the freedom to think imaginatively about how the experiences and outcomes might be organised and planned for in creative ways which encourage deep, sustained learning.

School-community partnerships

Developing partnerships in the wider community allows practitioners to provide new contexts and enhanced learning experiences for all children and young people.

School-college partnerships

The importance of strong partnerships between schools and colleges.

The School Improvement Partnership Programme (SIPP)

SIPP draws on the wealth of international educational research and practice demonstrating that the most effective school improvements are locally owned and led by teachers and school leaders working in partnership.
