Miss Collins is the non-teaching Headteacher of both schools and along with the children, staff and parents, works to maximise the learning opportunities for all pupils in his care.

Partnership working has a number of distinct advantages, including:
• Ensuring consistency of standards in learning and teaching
• Providing children with access to a wider group of friends and learning experiences
• Increasing the opportunities to develop staff expertise and the sharing of good practice
• Maximising resources to the benefit of all

Clearly, as a Partner Headteacher, there will be times when Miss Collins is not on the premises of Stow Primary. On these occasions the Principal Teacher, Miss Matthewson, will have responsibility for the school.
