Some of the ways in which we work together include:

  • Forums for headteachers, deputy headteachers, SENDCos, Early Years Leaders and Subject leaders
  • Joint projects for the Year of Faith
  • Shared experiences for pupils, for example sports and music events, pupil retreats and conferences, joint projects for more able pupils
  • School to school s
  • Support for staff, including mentoring and shared professional development


The Lead Headteacher is currently Cathy Davis from St. Anne’s Primary School.  The Partnership Convener is Karen Pluckrose, Headteacher at St Mary’s Primary School
