Erdington Schools Collaboration

Where everyone has something to give and everyone has something to learn.

Thursday 14 September 2017 saw the launch of the Erdington Schools Collaboration. We are a group of seven Erdington schools working together, under a formal contractual collaboration.

The other schools in the Erdington Schools Collaboration are Birches Green Infant School, Birches Green Junior School, Featherstone Nursery School, Gunter Primary School, Osborne Nursery School and Osborne Primary School.

Each school within the collaboration remains an autonomous Local Authority maintained school with its own identity, existing board of Governors, controlling its own budget, and managing its own curriculum and staffing.

The main aims of working together in this way are to enhance continual school improvement, foster community pride and secure the best possible outcomes for the children of Erdington.

Further benefits include: financial savings through the shared procurement of goods and services; joint training opportunities; smoother transition for pupils from Nursery through the primary phases.

As a Collaboration, together we will:

  • Promote accountability and responsibility within an ethos of support and challenge.
  • Create a safe, secure and happy environment where individuals thrive and experience success.
  • Lead every member of the community to engage on a journey of continuous improvement building upon previous best.
  • Support every individual to become confident, independent, lifelong learners.
  • Develop an inclusive environment which fosters shared values and mutual respect.
  • Provide equality of opportunity.
  • Foster a sense of pride in our local community.

Urban Learning Partnership

We are proud to be part of the Urban Learning Partnership, a CFBT-accredited Peer Review Group comprising seven schools across Birmingham in a variety of settings, who work together collaboratively and strategically on bespoke and shared areas for School Improvement across the Partnership.

The Partnership works on an annual cycle of Peer review, evaluation and support which benefits all members.

Areas that have been impactful for Paget through this work have included best practice in EAL, KS1 and future recruitment alternatives.
