The St. Helier Community Cluster

Perseid School is a founder member of the St. Helier Community Cluster.  This comprises St. Teresa's, Malmesbury and Abbotsbury primary schools along with Perseid Lower school. 

The St Helier Community Cluster - Mission Statement

Our Context

All four schools are geographically close and have a history of informal collaboration. All four schools already work as members of the Merton Primary Partnership. We share a number of common aspects reflecting the community we serve. These include;

  • A constantly evolving cultural mix
  • Areas of high deprivation
  • High mobility
  • Low attainment and low aspirations in white working class families

 Our Principles and Aims

The St Helier Community Cluster ascribes to the broader Merton Primary Partnership principles and aims.

In addition we are guided by the principle of wanting to work together to serve the St Helier community in order that our pupils have the opportunity to and experience of giving something back to their own communities, which will in turn strengthen those communities.

We are committed to providing educational opportunities that enrich and enhance the long term prospects for our pupils and our community and raise aspirations with and for our young people. 

We anticipate that through working together we will strengthen community cohesion and help to break down barriers

Our Partnership Actions

  • We write a yearly Action Plan which defines our community activities for that period
  • We recognise the value of using the arts as a vehicle for achieving our principles and aims
