Friends of Little Ilford School (FLIS)

FLIS is Friends of Little Ilford School.  This is the forum for parents to learn about how they can support their child’s learning.  Throughout the year there is a programme of after school sessions run by teachers which help parents understand how learning takes place in LIS. We at LIS believe that greater involvement and an improved partnership between the school and parents leads to further success for our students.

 At the same time, FLIS provides a forum for parents to express their views, contribute to school initiatives and plan workshops to support and develop parenting skills. FLIS also develops community links and provides opportunities for the community to socialise and learn together.

The school works with a number of external organisations which enables us to expose our students to a range of activities, interests and experiences (during and outside of school), as well as supporting the families of our students and the wider community:

Little Ilford School is part of the Manor Park Schools Community Partnership which includes many of its partner primary schools.

The aim of the group is to work towards breaking down barriers to learning for the students of Manor Park through system-wide improvements in practice resulting in higher outcomes for our young people. The schools work very hard to improve transition from nursery school through to secondary school. We work together on a range of projects, including the following:

  • Teens and Toddlers
  • Sporting Events
  • Teacher Subject Groups (Maths, English and Science)
  • The Commonwealth Youth Choir

Little Ilford School is currently working as a partner school with the East London Business Alliance (ELBA), the leading social regeneration charity in east London that facilitates corporate involvement in community organisations, education and employment across the east London boroughs, on their Business Education for Schools (BES) Programme. The BES Programme, ELBA’s flagship Education Works programme, builds networks between businesses, schools and young people through understanding their needs, skills and knowledge. The programme develops long-term relationships by delivering responsive programmes to engage and enrich performance and futures for all.

Little Ilford School has seen representatives from national and global organisations regularly meeting with the school’s senior leadership team to discuss the school’s long term objectives and how they can support them. As well as supporting students, BES also seeks to improve the business efficiency of the school through support of our staff and leadership. Little Ilford School would like to thank ELBA, our BES members, our staff and our students for making our Business Education in School’s activity such a success.
