Gordonbrock is in federation with Eliot Bank, with both schools working closely together led by Maria Gilmore, Executive Headteacher.
The leadership teams meet regularly to ensure that systems that are aligned are working well. The Heads of School work together where required to support and challenge one another. The schools work from the same curriculum map and year group teams meet regularly to plan. Phase leaders and curriculum leaders are also developing their partnerships with joint learning walks and shared strategic planning.
We became a hard federation in September 2013. This gives a formal framework to the partnership and enables the schools to move forward with long-term security. We are determined that the schools will keep their individuality underpinned by common expectations and purpose.
