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


The goal of school partnerships in Nottingham is to create long-lasting local connections. These partnerships aim to improve outcomes for kids and teens by bringing schools together with public, private, community, and voluntary partners. Together, they work on a coordinated approach to make things better for young people.

Local school partnerships have developed into mature collaborations building on trusted relationships between schools and partners. Partnerships include primary, secondary, special schools and academies.Education Partnership Strategy
