Collaborative Partnerships

Jerry Clay Academy is very outward looking and because of this, has many local and national partnerships. Since 2017, JCA have worked with over 400 schools in order to support school improvement through bespoke support and conferences. Support is provided through the Jerry Clay English Hub and the National Support School. Schools from across the country come to visit and likewise, we love to visit other schools and learn constantly!

To ensure local connections for children and staff an informal working partnership with eight local schools was formed. The partnership enables all schools within the group to aim for excellence, develop innovation and provide strong support to one another.

Outwood Together:

  • Established in January 2015 as a result of a deep-rooted passion held by the eight schools to be an inclusive group, aiming for the very best for our children and staff.
  • Made up of schools across the Outwood area of Wakefield and includes Primary Schools, Academies and a Special School.
  • Committed to fostering excellence within member schools and beyond, raising standards of teaching and learning and providing the children of Outwood Together with an education that equips them with the skills, knowledge and understanding to ensure that they can fully reach their potential and are prepared for their future.
  • A dynamic group, working pro-actively in the areas of Teacher Development, Continuous Professional Development, School to School Support, Leadership and action research.
