Collaborative Working

Click here for a Newmarket Academy Partnership Presentation

All Saints' enjoys close collaborative partnership with a number of local schools and agencies; we believe that this enhances the children's educational experiences ensuring that each pupil is able to do their very best in a stimulating environment where their specific needs and interests can be met.

In preparation for our youngest children's arrival at school, we liaise with their pre-school settings, talking with parents and staff so that a smooth transfer is achieved. Children visit the school for induction sessions and an informative meeting is arranged with staff, the school nursing team, attendance officer and school meals provider.
There is a planned system of induction activities between the school and Newmarket Academy, our local secondary provider, which is specifically targeted at our Year 6 pupils. Additionally, specialist teachers from the Academy input in topic work in Key Stage 2 and provide informative assemblies. Staff from the Academy also attend our parents' consultations meetings so that there is ease of access to information about transfer for parents.

The staff, from all Newmarket schools, work together in a variety of different ways for example, the "Heads Together" group meet regularly to discuss joint policy initiatives and school improvement. Through the "Newmarket Schools Partnership",teaching staff also moderate and support each other in agreeing assessment levels for children. Staff from local schools receive training together at times including, for example, on curriculum development in preparation for the implementation of the New National Curriculum in, 2014.
Additionally, local schools have embarked on the implementation of the "Mathematics Mastery" programme. This approach draws significantly on the curricular principles of Singapore and introduces some new methodology. Staff involved with the introduction of the programme, meet together at local networks to discuss their practice, learning and teaching.

Where we offer shared placements with other providers, our staff have regular meetings to ensure accurate assessment of needs and clear lines of communication.
We are part of the Forest Heath School Sports Association this enables our children take part in competitions and tournaments with local schools.
Our schools believe that expertise should be shared; consequently, there are many examples of practitioners coaching and training their peers on an individual or small group basis as we all seek to sustain continued improvement for our children.
