This award is for a school or trust or partnership that makes an impact through its collaboration with other schools and colleges. Leaders think less of ‘accountability’ and more of ‘responsibility’ – seeing their role as providing opportunities to enhance the lives of children, teachers and other staff through collaborative working.
These are schools or trusts or partnerships that have a commitment to a wider impact well beyond an individual school or institution. Leaders recognise that achievement isn’t just about test and examination results (though of course these matter): therefore the winner of this award will have the moral drive to ensure that the opportunities traditionally enjoyed by the most advantaged members of a community are made more broadly available to all, irrespective of their background.
This category is open to all schools, partnerships or trusts educating children aged between 4-18.
