Our Vision for Partnership Work 

As a school, we believe that partnership working is very important to help improve standards for our children.

We are part of the Morley Primary Partnership which includes: 

  • Asquith Primary School 
  • Birchfield Primary School
  • Churwell Primary School
  • Drighlington Primary School
  • Fountain Primary School 
  • Morley Victoria Primary School 
  • Seven Hills Primary School
  • St Francis Primary School

The leadership teams of all the schools meet at least every half term to share good practice, share continuous professional development, training, develop ideas and moderate outcomes.

During 2019-20, the focus is on subject leaders meeting together to support developments around the broad and balanced curriculum.  Class teachers meet three times a year to moderate writing and Headteachers, in conjunction wit the School Improvement Advisor, are observing reading across all schools. 

exceed - scitt

As part of our commitment to support teachers of the future, we are part of the  Exceed Scitt Partnership which was recently graded as 'Outstanding' by OFSTED.  Trainee teachers are placed in our school each year and our teachers contribute to their training.  We have a good reputation for supporting trainees in our school and a substantial proportion of trainees who have placements with us go on to employment either in our school or in partnership schools.

cluster support

Nurture is an essential part of our school ethos.  We recognise the need to support children to ensure that their health and well-being needs are met if children are to meet their potential in the classroom.

We use some of our funding to support the work of the Cluster, an organisation, based at Churwell Primary School, which offers a range of support for children and families.  This may include: family support workers, art therapy, counselling, speech therapy (over and above our statutory entitlement) and access to parenting programmes.  As a result of early intervention, we aim to reduce the number of referrals to other services.
