Our organisation serves North Huddersfield and is led by a partnership of seven schools, that work together to ensure our children receive every opportunity and a positive experience of learning. 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 CE vc Primary 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:
A sense of community – in which members of the schools, both staff and pupils are supportive of one another.
Working Together – taking every opportunity to work together with our local community.
A sense of purpose, fun and vibrancy - encouraging positive attitudes within our schools and community.
Our local environment – a strong understanding that the school and local environment must be maintained and developed to inspire our young people.
Togetherness – A strong sense of togetherness that encourages calm, purposeful activity and helps to create a welcoming and warm ethos.
Potential – A community in which everyone will be encouraged to explore and fully achieve their potential.
Respect – a community where respect will be assumed, required and encouraged of and for everybody and everything.
