Securing the best start in life for our children and young people
Creating a learning partnership
Ealing Council have established the Ealing Learning Partnership (ELP) in which schools have access to almost £600,000 of extra council funding and, through joint subscriptions, new avenues to learn from one another’s best practice. The ELP enables schools to share the costs of training and procurement, support each other in terms of staff development and to tackle issues around recruitment and retention. This reduces the isolation of individual schools in weathering the effects of ongoing government cuts by innovation and sharing the burden together. 95% of all Ealing’s maintained schools are signed up to the ELP and they aim to achieve 100% by 2022.
