The purpose of the Learning Partnership is to:
- provide strategic guidance to the Council
- support Council decision making and enhance educational outcomes across Waltham Forest
- increase awareness of current issues and promote examples of innovation and best practice that can be adopted across the borough
Waltham Forest’s Learning Partnership is an independent partnership led by those who deliver education in the borough. The partnership’s remit is wider than Teaching and Learning and includes support for children, with a commitment to promoting the voices of children and young people.
It allows schools to work on shared projects of their choosing, these could be on subjects as diverse as teacher recruitment, pupil places, Special Educational Needs and pupil mental health and well-being.
Its aims are:
- exceptional standards
- no child left behind
- system led improvement
- joint venture
- highest quality professionals
