Bangabandhu Community Partnerships
The Bangabandhu and Globe Soft Federation
From September 2018 Bangabandhu has been in a soft federation partnership with another Tower Hamlets school, Globe Primary, which is just a five minutes-walk from Bangabandhu.
As a soft federation both Bangabandhu and Globe retain their own individual identities, ethos and uniqueness but benefit greatly from the partnership in terms of sharing resources as well as staff collaboration and training opportunities. Both schools have their own Governing Body and budget. Ms Maxwell is the Executive Headteacher of both schools and splits her time equally between both schools.

THE Partnership - Tower Hamlets Education Partnership (THEP)
We work with THE Partnership, Tower Hamlets Education Partnership (THEP).
THEP is a schools' company established by school leaders to deliver high quality school improvement to all Tower Hamlets schools. It is rooted in the highly successful collaboration that has characterised and underpinned education in the borough over the last two decades. The schools within THEP operate as a family to support, challenge and encourage each other in their determination to do the very best for every child.
THEP is independent of the Local Authority, but works closely with it and is supported by it.
Through our partnership with THEP we benefit from: CPD and training opportunities, school improvement team support, leadership consultant support and the peer review, school improvement mechanism.

IntoUniversity provides local learning centres where young people are inspired to achieve.
At each local centre IntoUniversity offers an innovative programme that supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to attain either a university place or another chosen aspiration.
Bangabandhu has taken part in the Primary FOCUS Programme for many years now. It is a two-year package of focused learning for classes in Years 5 and 6. The programme supports and enhances the National Curriculum. This is what happens:
Year 5 - 'What is a University?' Workshop and FOCUS Day. The class are introduced to and familiarised with university life and learning. The class focus on a particular curriculum area, chosen by our school, and work in teams to develop cooperation skills.
Year 6 - FOCUS Week and Transition Workshop. The FOCUS Week offers the class five days of concentrated learning on a topic of the school's choosing, ending with a graduation at a top university. The Transition Workshop gives students the chance to discuss and prepare for their transition to secondary school and think about their future.
V&A Museum of Childhood - Young V&A
As part of the Museum of Childhood's 150th anniversary, children from Bangabandhu and neighbouring school Globe Primary took part in a project to help redesign the space. It will soon be reopened and renamed as the Young V&A.
