Community Action Expert Group

The group has been in existence for over 40 years and consists of teachers representing the Association’s schools with responsibility for developing programmes of community action, partnerships and volunteering in independent schools. We aim to foster links between schools within and outside the independent sector, in the UK and overseas, and to support schools which are beginning or seeking to expand their programmes. Members meet termly and host a national conference every few years.

The group regularly advises on Government and DfE consultations and policy-making. Members of the group represent nearly 30 independent schools around the UK. Programmes are rich and varied including global partnerships, weekly timetabled social action, service learning within the curriculum and one-off events.
