At Chad Vale we are very proud of our partnerships with other schools and outside agencies. Here are details of just some of our very successful partnerships:

Squire Sanders Solicitors

Squire Sanders Solicitors are regular visitors to our school and support our children through a programme of one-to-one additional support for both reading and numeracy. The children enjoy working with Hammonds and our assessments show marked progress for the children who work with them.

Inspire Workshops

As part of our commitment to Family Literacy, every class has the opportunity to take part in an ‘Inspire Workshop’ each year for a whole morning.

The children invite a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, guardian or even a friendly neighbour to work alongside them while they carry out some exciting learning. Previous Inspire Workshops have included Puppet Making, 'Yum' Healthy Eating, PE Workshops and Mathletics. The workshops help to consolidate links between home and school, and highlight the important role of parents as educators in the very valued partnerships we have at Chad Vale. 

The benefits are wide ranging, giving children the opportunity to work alongside family members on a shared objective, allowing parents to see first-hand the high quality of work that their child is producing and above all is a fun and intellectually stimulating morning for all.


Music Service

The local authority Music Service provide our after school instrumental lessons in flute, clarinet, tabla and violin. These lessons are currently funded by the school at no cost to parents.

Evolve Sport

Evolve Sport support the delivery of in-curriculum P.E lessons and also run some of our sports after-school clubs.

Ladywood Consortium

We are a member of the Ladywood Consortium, a working group of 16 schools in our locality, who together develop strategies for school improvement, support Local and National Initiatives in Education and provide Professional Development opportunities for all staff.

Birmingham City University/University College Birmingham

We are pleased to be partnership schools to these universities, who use Chad Vale Primary Schools to develop their trainee teachers experience. Supported by School-based and Faculty-based Tutors, trainee teachers have the opportunity to teach classes at Chad Vale as part of their teaching practices.

Local Schools

We work regularly with and support the work of Lordswood Girls School, Lordswood Boys School, Harborne Academy, St Paul's School for Girls.

Teaching Schools

We belong to the KEHS Teaching School alliance and have our own Specialist Leader of Education (Vickie Crombie) who supports initial teacher training and other alliance schools.
