Partnership for positive impact.

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.

Who can enter?

This category is open to all schools, partnerships or trusts educating children aged between 4-18.

Points to cover:

The following prompts might help to focus your thinking as you prepare your entry:

  • Opportunity: How has the school or partnership or trust created distinctively rich and ambitious opportunities for children and staff in a group of schools?
  • Reaching outwards: the winning school or trust or partnership will see itself as the catalyst for wider success beyond any individual school or institution: there will be a commitment to collective responsibility across a group of schools
  • Achievement: the school will define achievement more broadly than through progress data and examination results: it will show the opportunities that have come to children and staff through dedicated, hard-wired partnership working
  • Celebrating: this will be a partnership which will tell its story to the wider community and celebrate the successes achieved by all kinds of children and staff. It will be a partnership that exemplifies values of collaboration and distributed leadership
