Sheffield Strategic Partnership

Sheffield City Council and Learn Sheffield are exploring some new approaches to developing education strategy in the city and jointly set up a working group to develop and make recommendations for a new approach to civic partnership in the autumn term 2023.

This work was supported by Jonathan Crossley-Holland (who chaired the working group) and ISOS, both of whom have led research in this field. Meetings of this working group were open to all school leaders and the minutes and presentations from these meetings can be found below.

At the last meeting, in January 2024, the group decided that the focus should shift to become an attendance working group. This will enable work to begin on attendance, which is a key identified priority, whilst the wider civic landscape becomes clearer in the light of the City Goals and changes within SCC.

Further information about this project, including meeting papers as they become available can be found below.
