South Lakes Rural Partnership (SLRP)


The South Lakes Rural Partnership was formed in late 2012 to support primary and secondary schools in the south lakes area (outside Kendal) in their continued school improvement processes. Funding is received through grants and school subscriptions to employ a part-time executive officer and run projects for the 30+ schools involved in SLRP. A diverse range of projects, initiatives and services are currently in operation, all highly valued by member schools:

Family Support and Child Counselling Service;

Network Groups: for staff to share and develop good practice in specific subject areas, for example, Early Years, Special Educational Needs and Leadership;

Staff professional development and training: covering a wide variety of current issues and needs as determined by the member schools;

Peer Reviews: senior staff offer peer reviews to support ongoing school improvement;

Joint Projects: current projects include the Global Learning Programme and an arts project;

Procurement of Services: a number of contracts have been procured on behalf of member schools, resulting in significant economies and savings.
