Some of the Key acheivement in 2015-2016 were:
- School to school support: partnership groups for curriculum leads, inclusion leads, Early Years, Governors and many more met termly to share best practice, resources and planning and for peer support; Heads triads met termly to provide school to school support and challenge; moderation twilights for maths and writing took place throughout the year; joint training on attachment, bereavement, restorative justice, coaching; learning walks for teachers and senior leaders in other schools; projects directly impacting on the quality of teaching and learning, such as Lesson Study and a Lower KS2 writing project.
- Family Support: 74 families received intensive 1:1 bespoke family support; 53 parents/carers accessed bespoke brief interventions and 182 accessed a range of workshops and courses. 2 Social Work students completed their placement within the team enabling the service to also work directly with the children of families it supports. Funding secured through Brighton & Hove’s Stronger Families Stronger Communities (SFSC) team enabled the team to expand and to plan longer term. Excellent partnership working with local community and voluntary sector organisations and local agencies helped to ensure joined up and longer term support for our families.
- Enrichment: 340 of our Y4 children across member schools attended a joint 3 day residential, introducing them to a wide range of physical and team activities; 60 mathematically curious children attended a maths enrichment day; 260 Year 6 children came together for a fun-packed transition day to support their move to secondary school; 390 Y3 children and 390 Y2 children took part in joint multi-skills events hosted by a local secondary school; 390 Reception children went to Brighton Dome for a range of arts, music, dance and museum workshops.
Wellbeing: free parent counselling, provided through Dolphin House charity, was extended to a third school within the Partnership. A Babywatching Programme, to enhance children’s emotional literacy and empathy, was run in 3 of our schools.
