Chaloner Primary School

  1. About Us
  2. Partnerships


We belong to a number of partnerships which allow for many opportunities for professional support and challenge; thus enabling our school community to be self reflective and constantly seeking to improve. Through these partnerships we engage in joint CPD, procurement and self evaluation for staff at all levels. . 

East Cleveland Co-operative Learning Trust

The school converted to foundation status on 31st August 2013 as a full member of the East Cleveland Co-operative Learning Trust: consisting of a number of schools across East Cleveland. 

Belonging to the trust allows for: 

  • Collaborative working on school improvement priorities.

  • Leadership support and accountability.
