School Partnerships

 Schools work together with public, private, community and voluntary partners to improve the outcomes for children and young people.

Overview

The aim of school partnerships in Nottingham is to build sustainable partnerships that work towards developing an integrated approach to improving outcomes for children and young people through schools working together with public, private, community and voluntary partners.

School partnerships have developed into mature collaborations building on trusted relationships between schools and partners.  Partnerships include primary, secondary, special schools and academies.

Each partnership has an action plan to improve jointly agreed areas of focus.  A summary of the work of the partnerships is available to download at the bottom of this page along with the Schools Partnership Booklet giving more in-depth information on each partnership. 

Primary schools in the City may also be part of the NLT (Nottingham Learning Trust).

There are two TSA's (Teaching School Alliance) in the City.
