To grow our community of primary schools across Milton Keynes and the surrounding area, working together to enable more children to access engaging, broad-based learning experiences that lay a strong foundation for their wellbeing and future success.
Working together to deliver outstanding school leadership, inspiring teaching and support within a stimulating broad-based curriculum that empowers children across the Grand Union Partnership to make great progress.
Outstanding schools set a vision that goes well beyond a set of inspection criteria. They deliver excellence through creating a community and culture of learning that extends to much more than any simple checklist of activities. Every school community has to consider fundamental questions regarding the shape and purpose of the curriculum and the ways in which this is accessed and experienced by all children. We reflect on the welfare and development of each child, seeking to understand and address potential barriers to learning and promote progress. At the Grand Union Partnership we are committed to recognising and celebrating the diversity of effective approaches to support the development and progress of our children. Whilst we celebrate this creativity, as a learning community we are focused on reviewing, understanding and maximising the positive impact of the approaches used in each of our schools. Our quality assurance frameworks and shared curriculum principles support this. Together we make the difference.
As a Trust we don’t prescribe a range of specific curriculum schemes or impose a narrow set of strategies linked to teaching, learning and assessment. Headteachers and their teams work in partnership across the Trust and engage in professional dialogue that promotes both support and challenge and maintains our focus on ensuring that children always come first.
