‘transforming children's lives through partnership and collaboration'
Rockliffe Manor Primary School is a member of the Inspire Partnership:
The Inspire Partnership is a small multi-academy trust working in Greenwich and Medway to transform students’ lives.
As a partnership of schools we are better able to support our students, we strongly believe in the power of collaboration and continually work together to find innovative ways of working.
Our partnership of schools is made up of Foxfield, Maundene, Rockliffe Manor and Woodhill. Our schools all have their own identity and are separate schools however we work together to have similar visions and values and continually collaborate behind the scenes to help us benchmark our standards and work together to improve the teaching and learning for all our children. Our partnership is led by CEO Rob Carpenter who works across all our schools supporting our school based headteachers and a central team of executive leaders and central office staff who are deployed to work across all schools within our MAT.
Working in partnership, sharing practice and showcasing outstanding teaching and learning helps us raise our expectations and continually look for ways we can improve. We know we are stronger together and enables us to offer the very best to the students and staff of our schools. To better understand our partnership of schools and how we work together look to the Inspire Partnership Website
A key area of focus across our partnership of schools is to ensure consistent and quality teaching and learning. We are dedicated to supporting and developing our staff across our schools to ensure the best for our students. Some ways in which our schools work together are:
- Joint training
- Shared resources
- Subject leader networks
- Joint planning
- Moderation meetings
- Joint school trips
- Shared governor training
- School sports competitions
- Lesson observations
