Work together, learn together, succeed together
In ancient Greece, the word ‘Agora’ was used to describe a public open space used for assemblies and markets; Agora, a place where people could be together.
As such, at the Agora Learning Partnership, we believe in the power of collaboration to improve the life chances of children and young people, whilst enabling them to flourish and achieve the very best outcomes in all aspects of school life and beyond. This belief underpins the vision for our organisation.
We aspire for carefully planned, Partnership-wide collaboration to be the driving force for school improvement and strive for a self-improving, self-sustaining system. We believe this, alongside our ‘local decisions for local children’ approach, will bring about rapid improvement in schools and will result in the children and young people we serve being offered a first class, enriched education that is fully inclusive; we will meet the needs of every child and prepare them for future life.
For such collaboration to be a success, participants must have a variety of skills, knowledge and expertise. We therefore have a responsibility to become the employer of choice, so that we can recruit and retain talented individuals who are well-suited to the uniqueness of their chosen Partnership school – uniqueness which will continue to be valued and celebrated as our Partnership grows and develops.
