Impact of partnership work done in 2019 (ISC annual Census 2020)

  • 12 state schools involved
  • 500+ state school pupils involved
  • 400 staff hours given

*Please note, data shown here is from the 2020 Census for partnerships in 2019, rather than from the 2021 Census. This is due to the impact of COVID-19 on full year collection for 2021. The coronavirus pandemic has forced many schools to put some partnership projects on hold until restrictions are eased.
