The Academy has developed a blossoming relationship with McIntosh Memorial Primary School for the last 7 years. This year we are introducing St John’s and St Peter’s to the global partnership. McIntosh Memorial Primary School is situated in Mandeville, Jamaica who have over 1200 students. We have developed a relationship that has improved all aspects of everyday school life at McIntosh Memorial Primary School and All Saints Multi Academy Trust.
The All Saints’ teacher visits to Jamaica ‘are one of the most successful school partnerships in Jamaica according to the Jamaican Ministry of Education’. The breadth and depth of relationships established has enriched our school community and education through shared learning.
Staff from both schools have been able to visit, witness and experience different techniques of educating young children. Staff have learnt new skills, and gathered new ideas that have been integrated into our school curriculum.
Together as one community, we have had a positive impact on over 1400 children across two schools, two communities, and across one united global partnership. As part of our Literacy lessons, children have been able to write and receive letters, pieces of work and even videos.
The journey is still at an early stage, we have a creative and dedicated team that want to continue to inspire children across two communities and develop together as one family.
