At The First Federation in Devon, four primary schools have formed a hard federation in order to improve standards across the board. This allows them to share good practice by arranging senior leadership meetings, joint staff meetings and even video conferencing to allow schools to link up and increase dialogue via the internet. The federation even allows staff to change schools around the federation, which means that their knowledge can be shared further across the school. At Bishop Stopford School in Kettering they have joined the Leading Edge Partnership Programme started by the SSAT. They work closely with four schools in their local area to share ideas and make sure that they have a coherent strategy both at management level and for teaching and learning. The partnership even allows them to team up with local businesses to share lesson starters and brainstorm ideas to improve lessons and make them relevant for the world of work.
