Sheffield Strategic Partnership

Sheffield City Council and Learn Sheffield are exploring some new approaches to developing education strategy in the city and have jointly setting up a working group to develop and make recommendations for a new approach to civic partnership.

This work is being supported by Jonathan Crossley-Holland (who will chair the working group) and ISOS, both of whom have led research in this field. The working group met for the first time in the summer term and have been tasked with a brief to make recommendations by December 2023.

Meetings of this working group are open to all school leaders but Learn Sheffield will also work with sector partnerships to ensure that each sector and type of setting is reflected within the group. These links to the existing meeting infrastructure will also ensure that the work of the group is disseminated and widely understood.

We have scheduled three meetings for this working group – to be held at Learn Sheffield (Albion House) - see dates below:

  • Wednesday 1 November 1:00pm – 3:00pm
  • Thursday 23 November 11:00am – 1:00pm
  • Friday 15 December 10:00am – 12:00pm
