The WOWS Consortium is a collaborative group of 17 Primary schools and 1 Special school who work together to improve the outcomes for all within our communities.

The network focuses on five levels of learning:

  • Child/adult
  • Collaborative group
  • Organisational
  • Leadership
  • Network

By providing high quality learning opportunities, all members of our communities benefit from shared professional development, creative endeavour and mutual support.

In recognition of the positive contribution WOWS makes to enriching the lives of all, we hold a Leading Aspect Award for collaborative learning.

We have had the opportunity to work with the DfE on projects to review marking and feedback processes, minimise staff workload and ways to develop parental partnerships.

WOWS has provided many opportunities over the last fourteen years for all members of our learning community.

As well as professional training for staff, there have been dozens of opportunities for children to work collaboratively. Our children have benefitted from sharing a wide range of experiences including:

Football Tournaments Sports Festivals Music Festivals

Art Exhibitions

Newspaper Production Maths Workshops
Puzzle Workshops Samba Workshops Science Workshops
Poetry Workshops Photography Workshops
