With effect from July 2019, John T. Rice Infant and Nursery School joined a collaboration with Farmilo Primary School, Intake Farm Primary School and Northfield Primary School and Crescent Primary School.
The purpose of the collaboration is to:
Increase teacher skill, knowledge and expertise by increasing networking and the sharing of good practice opportunities
Develop and implement a peer to peer quality assurance process
Identify and utilise economies of scale
Increase the range of strategies used to secure positive behaviour at lunchtimes
Staff including Middays, teaching assistants, office staff, site staff, teachers and senior leaders meet regularly to share ideas, network and develop collaboration projects. This unique CPD provides our staff with good quality training and the opportunities to work closely with colleagues. This professional development benefits the whole school community providing experiences and learning opportunities for the young people we teach at JTR.
The collaboration is designed to share and strengthen practice across our schools. It is not intended to affect the unique characteristics of our school or the way that we operate on a day to day basis.
If you would like to know any more about our collaboration work, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
