About North Huddersfield Learning Community
Our organisation serves North Huddersfield and consisting of a partnership between seven schools, working strategically together to ensure that all of our children recieve the very best education. We believe that by working together we can assess and improve all aspects of our provision. This ensures that our children can benefit directly from the expertise that we share. We want all of our children to be successful within the work force of tomorrow and to be able to effectively apply the knowledge and skills that they have acquired in our care. To do this, we focus on school improvement in all aspects as well as enrichment, family and community opportunities. The North Huddersfield Learning Community is dedicated to providing a range of quality opportunities, with successful outcomes for pupils of all abilities and backgrounds, whilst providing support for our families. Our partnership is ambitious, dynamic and inspirational in its approach.
The partner schools include Ashbrow School, Birkby Infants and Nursery School, Birkby Junior School, Christchurch Academy, Fixby Junior and Infants School, St Thomas Primary CE School, and North Huddersfield Trust School.
By sharing experience and expertise, we increase our capacity to meet the needs of pupils and their families. Pupils regularly have opportunities to work and learn alongside children from other schools, ensuring children develop not only academic, but social skills for life outside of school.
By sharing resources, we are able to offer a wider range of enrichment activities – everything from skateboarding to horse-riding, bee-keeping to rock climbing.
Our staff benefit through professional learning networks which support the development of an ethos and culture of collaboration amongst all of our schools, which will have a clear impact on the lives of children and young people.
The intended outcomes for The North Huddersfield Learning Community will be:
- Continuing support for the programme of enrichment activities
- Opportunities to buy in high quality services to deliver across the schools
- Development of excellence in the delivery of all aspects of the curriculum
- The sharing and applying of systems, policies and practice
