Welcome to the Schools Action Website. Launched by the ISC Working Party for Community Action in 2011, the website is a forum for the exchange of ideas and best practice in the fields of community partnerships and charitable projects organised by schools. Whether you are a student inspired by your work in these rewarding areas, a teacher challenged to create a new community projects programme or an independent-state school partnership, or an experienced co-ordinator eager to share your expertise, this website can be an inspiration, a practical resource and a means of celebrating what you do. Students and teachers in junior and secondary schools in both the independent and maintained sectors are invited to use this exciting meeting-place for all those who know that community action is at the heart of the educational process. So don’t hesitate to get involved by reading, responding and contributing to its constantly updated stream of news about national and international projects run by schools all over the United Kingdom.
