Lifelong love of learning

Constable Collaborative Partnership

For the past three years, Dedham has been working strategically and collaboratively with Lawford C of E primary and Highfields Primary school.

The Three Heads meet regularly to plan valuable training for Governors, Senior Managers, teachers and support staff.

Each term teachers have opportunities to spend time in each others schools, observing and planning opportunities for sharing ideas and moderating samples of children’s work.

This year, the Head teachers have begun to carry out peer mentoring in each others schools initially taking the form of joint lesson observations in order to verify judgements.

We have found the partnership very helpful and supportive in moving the school’s development forward - combining the expertise in each school is very powerful.
