Partnerships with Bonner
THE Partnership (THEP)
At Bonner Primary we work closely 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 Bonner's partnership with THEP we benefit from; CPD and training opportunities, school improvement team support, leadership consultant support and the peer review, school improvement mechanism.

The Felix Project
The Felix Project is now up and running at Bonner Bethnal Green. The project is all about reducing food waste and supporting families who struggle financially to buy food.
Fresh fruit and vegetables will be delivered to Bonner Bethnal Green to reduce food waste. Our parents will be able to take home this produce that would have otherwise gone to waste.

We hope to have the Felix Project up and running at Bonner Mile End very soon.
Ashursts @ BBG
All Year 6 children at Bonner Bethnal Green take part in a junior enterprise scheme called First Steps, which involves Ashurst Law firm, Future First charity and Bonner Primary School. Ashurst fund the project, provide staff to work with groups of children and give us their venue and lunch. Future First plan and run the sessions, Bonner Primary School provide the children and support in the sessions.
This is a series of visits where the children cover the following areas:
- What do people at Ashurst do?
- Making a business – team challenge!
- My money – saving & spending!
- What are my options for the future?
- To secondary school & beyond! My next steps.
Throughout the visits, the children keep track of what they are learning in a booklet.
The aim of the project is to encourage the children to think about themselves as employees of the future and realise that if they have a goal there are many small steps which will lead them to achieving that goal.
Lloyds Banking Group and Code Club
Bonner children have been working with volunteers from Lloyds Banking Group on Scratch projects provided by Code Club. This partnership was established in 2018 and has been running smoothly since then. The children have benefited from the expertise and generosity of our partners who commit their time every Wednesday for an hour.
This year a selected group of children took part in CIty Giving Day at Lloyds Banking Group offices. The group shared their coding skills with adults and were visited by the Lord Mayor.
Bonner Code Club is taking part in a very exciting and groundbreaking new project: Encouraging girls to study computing.
The project which is called Gender Balance in Computing, is a programme of work in the National Centre of Computing
Education and is funded by the Department of Education. Bonner is one of 140 schools nationwide participating in this
research. The project will last for 12 weeks and it is accessed through Code Club.
