Erdington Schools Collaboration
Where everyone has something to give and everyone has something to learn.
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.
The Headteacher at Paget is the chair of Erdington Consortium of schools. This is an active, cross phase group working together to improve outcomes for pupils across Erdington.
Groups within the consortium are a Headteacher’s network, Deputies network and SENCO network. There are also core subject curriculum lead groups.
Magic Breakfast Bagels
Our school has joined the government’s National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered through Magic Breakfast.
All of our children are offered a FREE piece of warm toasted bagel before or during the school day. It is a great way to start the day! The bagels are being supplied by Magic Breakfast. This gives every child the opportunity to start the day with the right fuel for learning.
We recognise that mornings are such busy times for many parents, and children can sometimes go without food before school. Research shows that children who eat a healthy breakfast are more settled and ready to learn than those who don’t.
We want every child at Paget to start the day with everything they need in order to learn effectively; a fundamental element of this is a healthy, filling breakfast. Our free offer of toasted bagels are to supplement your child’s normal breakfast.
Children will be able to pick up a piece of freshly, toasted bagel as they arrive at school or are given a bagel in their classroom.
When our school Breakfast Club is running, we start at 8.00am serving a wider variety of cereals through Magic Breakfast.
