The Wharfe Valley Learning Partnership
The schools in this area have a long established practice of working closely together within the Elmete Partnership of Schools & Services (EPoSS) Family of Schools. Nine of these schools (as listed above) took this collaboration further in January 2014 by setting up The Wharfe Valley Learning Partnership (WVLP).
The Partnership is a Cooperative Educational Trust, enabling each school to keep its unique identity and autonomy, whilst simultaneously working closely together to benefit our children, young people and communities.
Together, these popular and successful schools – rated good or outstanding by OFSTED – have a very secure base on which to build a strong, effective partnership. The Governing Bodies of these schools believe that a Trust of this kind is the best way to ensure the long term, sustainable collaboration that is required to meet our common aims.
The WVLP seeks to develop practice across the schools to further enhance the provision and opportunities available to our children and young people, maintaining and improving their already high standards of attainment and achievement. It collaborates closely with other organisations, such as Leeds City Council services and providers of higher education and others, so that we can serve our children, young people, families and communities most effectively.
