Schools that work in collaboration are shown to have a broader curriculum perspective, a more informed, empowered staff and a recognition of the part that they play in the wider local community. The Brent School Clusters provide schools with opportunities to network with a variety of schools within their local area. This enables information, expertise and various academic opportunities to be shared among members.
Cluster schools have the opportunity to meet on a regular basis, often half-termly, as well as to organise various training and developmental meetings that address the Cluster’s specific needs. As regular meetings also fosters trust and a willingness to share expertise, schools often work with other Cluster members to help moderate levels of teaching and learning as well as work together to bench-mark each others’ standards.
If your school is not in a Cluster, you can contact a member of the BSP Team and they will provide you with advice and contact details.
