Onen hag oll groups

Effective collaboration across the educational landscape is central to the recent White Paper, Opportunity for All.  The Government’s ‘Area Based Approach’ outlined within the White Paper has made this an even greater priority for our region given its status as an Education Investment Area.  Effective collaboration to ensure the best outcomes for our most vulnerable and disadvantaged learners will also support schools within multi academy trusts to ensure they meet the Government’s expectations of what constitutes a ‘strong trust’, as defined within the White Paper. Together we can work towards improving educational attainment and narrow the gap, predominantly for our most disadvantaged children in Key Stage 2 particularly in reading, writing and maths and achieve Local Authority’s priority that children in Cornwall enjoy, learn and achieve.

As you are probably already aware, the Onen Hag Oll groups, which build on the work of our original Area Disadvantage Groups, continue to be a key platform for effective collaboration across the educational landscape. We have already established a networked learning community that focusses on developing evidence-based, high-quality curriculum and teaching and learning practices. If you have not already taken part, we would invite you to join this important collaborative response to the core educational challenges we face across the Duchy.

Outcomes so far include:-

  • National and regional perspective on closing the gap for disadvantaged pupils
  • Evidence-informed collaboration at a local and strategic level
  • Local contextualisation of evidence
  • Shared effective implementation
  • Detailed evaluation of impact and outcomes.

We appreciate that collaboration is already happening between academies within MATS and between some schools in local partnerships, however the Onen Hag Oll groups offer a unique opportunity to bring together settings of any size and status with a view to generous collegiate response to shared challenges.

We look forward to seeing you there.
