EA tv  Community Use of School Premises

A guidance toolkit for schools.


The school estate has a range of educational, recreational and sporting facilities which can be used to meet a variety of needs. By adopting a strategic approach and opening their premises for community use, schools have enabled/created greater opportunities for both their own pupils and the wider communities that they serve. 

This series of EATV programmes showcases how a number of schools have developed a variety of partnerships with their communities. We explore the journey that they have undertaken but more importantly, we hear about the benefits that each school/community has gained from these partnerships.
