‘Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much’ – Helen Keller
St John Evangelist School works collaboratively with other networks of schools in order to develop staff expertise and improve opportunities and life chances for our children.
The Islington Catholic Network of schools engage in many activities which build a sense of belonging and provide support for one another in order to offer a high quality Catholic education for children across the borough. We take part in joint celebrations of Mass for staff and pupils, conferences, INSET days, sporting activities and social events over the year.
We have also been a member of the Maamulaha Network for over ten years. This comprises of a number of schools, Community, Voluntary Aided Special and Children’s Centres who work together on various projects to improve the provision for children across the borough. Again we are involved in joint INSET and training for staff and governors, sports, arts, English and maths projects for children, social events and ad hoc projects relating to new initiatives.
As a school we feel these networks are of the utmost importance in allowing us to look outwardly for new inspiration and best practices and avoid being an isolated institution that cannot move forward.
