We are a group of headteachers and Heads of School from 6 primary schools and one nursery school, each with different a catchment area and different challenges. Six of the schools are in the city and one is in Staffordshire. Three of the schools are part of a hard federation.

  • Exemplification materials produced for EYFS
  • Joint commissioning of services, for example ‘BeeActive’ for sports provision
  • ‘Critical friend’ visits by Headteachers and senior leaders
