Joint Projects

Mentoring and work experience

SHINE Merton offered mentoring training to students and graduates in transition to secondary school and college. Some also had an opportunity for work experience as dance coaches and Peer Mentors. Mentoring training was designed by our Shine tutor and Mindfulness coach to support pupils in transition and offer a library of wellbeing techniques and a safe space to talk. We had a fantastic response from students and parents which was excellent to see.


Healthy Schools 

We are fully committed to improving the health of our local community and making a positive difference. We have successfully delivered a number of emergency intervention programmes such as Mindfulness and talking therapy for staff and parents. We have also supported a number of families in need with free school breakfast thanks to ongoing support from Clarion Housing Association.


Parent Support Advisor Network

The Cluster Development Manager regularly meets with the school PSA’s offering them support and guidance. These meetings proved to be a fantastic hub for networking, fundraising and introduction to a number of work professionals and partner agencies.


Joint Training

The Cluster is committed to sharing resources and good practice by putting on a series of twilights and shorter training courses for teaching and support staff. The Inset on SEND took place on Monday 5th June 23.


Adult and Family Learning

We have partnered for the 12th year with Merton Adult Education to deliver adult and family learning sessions in schools such as First Aid, Passport to work and ESOL courses.


Our team of highly experienced Headteachers and partners continue to offer specially tailored support in the areas of business administration, coaching, behaviour management, leadership, innovation, and child, adolescent and adult mental health.

Development Work 

Our development work is based on extensive fundraising for partner schools, creative leadership approaches and innovation. We are dedicated to meeting community needs in financially sustainable ways. Our team of educational and business experts is very open to new ideas and building partnerships.
