Partnerships

 

Danegrove School is partnered with the following local schools.

 

  • East Barnet Acedemy

  • Monkfrith Primary

  • Church Hill Primary

  • Livingstone Primary

  • Cromer Road Primary

 

Each member school recognises the value in coming together as a group of schools. Our shared vision will enable our school staff to work together. At our last meeting we looked at assessment of pupils' work.  We also share staff training. There will also be opportunity for professional challenge across the schools.

 

All six schools will keep their unique ethos and will continue to promote and secure outstanding school improvement and raise standards for the children in their schools. Membership of the Partnership does not mean that we have become one school or a group of schools in an ‘academy chain’. Each school will retain their own identity, governing body and school budget.

Barnet Local Authority (LA) still retain a strategic and monitoring role and is responsible for ensuring the quality assurance of each partnership’s devolved school improvement functions.  When partnerships develop to the extent that they effectively monitor and challenge each other, the LA may not monitor individual schools directly but check the arrangements within each partnership to ensure consistent quality, robust challenge and timely intervention across all partnerships.

Moderation of Pupils' Work
