‘Primary 6 Partnership; Our Future, Our Way’.

‘The Primary 6 Partnership’s over-arching aim is to raise standards and improve outcomes for all children and young people in its community. It aspires to create a culture of high aspiration, a commitment to life-long learning and a determination to succeed and enjoy’

Schools that form the Primary 6 Partnership are Heathfield, Hempshill Hall, Old Basford and Rosslyn Park Primary Schools, a mix of maintained schools and academies. The partnership emerged from an existing family of schools with strong historical relationships.

As four schools operating across five sites serving over 2,000 children, we collaborate on six key areas.

There is a commitment from all schools to share expertise and resources to be as efficient and effective as possible, to enable children, staff and communities reach their potential. The P6P seeks to raise educational standards and provide positive, engaging learning opportunities and impact on school improvement by being

  • A network of excellence- improving whole system performance through our effective learning partnerships and joint practice development.
  • An engine of improvement – through support and challenge we will share strengths to address areas for improvement.
  • A source of efficiency- ensuring best value and sharing resources through collaboration.

The cohesive group of Head teachers direct the work of the partnership, monitor the implementation of the action plan and provide professional peer support. They are also keen to evaluate the impact of the various projects to ensure we are working effectively and they are supported by a Partnership Manager, who works flexibly two days per week.
