Lesson Study within and between schools allow teachers to investigate the most effective ways of teaching.
Joint observations between Heads
Joint work scrutinies
Shared staff meetings that share the best practice within the trust
Curriculum Development – shared opportunities are being provided for children from all of the schools/ academies e.g.
Learning Detectives – empowering children to share examples of good learning between schools.

Data analysis/ Sharing priorities - a termly analysis of data across the trust will identify the best progress and attainment and enable schools/ academies to share best practice
