Sherwood Education Improvement Partnership (EIP)
Sherwood EIP is part of the city-wide EIP strategy and is a collaborative partnership between seven schools:- Burford Primary, Carrington Primary and Nursery, Haydn Primary, Henry Whipple Primary, Djanogly Northgate Academy, Seely Infant and Nursery, and Seely Junior. We are pleased to also now be working in partnership with our associate school, Djanogly City Academy.
The EIP provides a shared vision for staff and pupils in our schools and involves partners to improve outcomes for our children, sustaining and developing a long term partnership based on collaboration and support.
We aim to enhance and enrich the education of all the pupils within the EIP, thus raising standards of achievement and educational attainment in its broadest sense. We aim for all our children and young people to leave us as independent learners and responsible citizens.
Sherwood EIP's Management Committee has identified as its particular priority for action in the academic years 2012-2014, "Developing and Embedding Consistently Outstanding Teaching". This builds on our previous years' priority of "Continuing to develop effective partnership working - Good to outstanding".
Our Project aims to spread excellence and raise aspirations by:-
- Training a network of teachers across the EIP and partner schools on the Outstanding Teaching Programme.
- Accrediting teachers across the partnership, enabling them to deliver the Outstanding Teacher Programme and the Improving Teacher Programme across the EIP and its broader network- other EIPs and Nottingham City Schools and Academies.
The intended outcome is a networked group of innovative teachers who can reflect on their teaching with the tools to enable raised levels of engagement in learning. Through providing consistently outstanding lessons we aim ultimately to raise the achievement of the children in our schools.
The EIP continues to seek to work in partnership with outside providers, including Voluntary organisations, who are able to support our priorities.
We continue to work with the Children's Centres across the EIP to support our children and families. We have a Parent-liaison Worker in each of the partnership schools. Their role is now a well established and integral part of this support. These approachable staff encourage parents into school and to take part in further learning themselves.
In addition, aspects of the Extended Schools programme in the EIP, developed since 2007, are being sustained by a continuing programme of family learning and a variety of activities involving the community and services.
Working in association with Djanogly City Academy, we have the School Sports Partnership underway for a second year, providing an exciting programme of events for our pupils. Children from each school have been trained as Sports Leaders and will champion the programme in their schools. Our Sports Leaders were taken on an inspirational visit to the London 2012 Olympic site in April.
Sharing the knowledge and expertise gained from all of our projects is key to our schools working in partnership to support each other. Shared INSETs and a "menu of expertise" on offer from each school ensure that CPD is always available.
