An Ogden school partnership involves time, energy and commitment from all members of staff involved. Please consider whether you will have the time available to organise a programme of activities outside your normal teaching timetable before applying. The programme lasts four years and will need the support of your senior leadership team and headteacher, including time out of school to attend partnership meetings.
