Musings on school clusters

I went for a wintry walk with my daughter Emily this afternoon. She works for the NSPCC and we were talking about how our working lives may overlap in the future. Linking the NSPCC to individual schools and establishing a firm relationship based on awareness of ChildLine should be part of the new move to put clusters of schools in direct contact with the voluntary sector. This of course also applies to a wide range of stakeholders. With the current review of the role of Training Schools by TDA, I’ve been thinking about how all this will fit with the development of Childrens’ Trusts and I shall be continuining with this theme over the next few weeks.
