Partnerships with Bonner

Towards an Anti-Racist Classroom

Bonner works closely with Global Learning London on their Towards an Anti-Racist Classroom Project in line with our Equality Policy. Our classrooms have no space for discrimination and we are helping our children speak out against racism they encounter. We have designated Project Leads at our school that attend regular training to make sure we adapt to the needs of our community and that every child is able to access the same, quality-first education that Bonner is so proud to provide to its pupils. 

As part of this work, we have devised our Anti-Racist Pledge.

In 2023-24 we were excited to be part of GLL's one-year pilot project, Football Forward, supported by The Football Association to encourage and create opportunities for young girls, from minoritized communities, to get involved in football and sports. Through active listening, interactive and creative workshops, we aim to place the voice and needs of girls at the heart of the project, to better understand how girls want to engage with football and sports in school.

The Power of Play Project


Did you know that 78% of children believe that adults don't think play is important?

We are delighted to be a Hub School, working with the LEGO Group and The Institute of Imagination, on the Power of Play initiative alongside Save the Children, EasyPeasy, and Young V&A. This exciting initiative aims to improve access to Learning through Play to help develop children’s wellbeing and holistic skills focusing particularly on developing collaborative, creative thinking. As part of this project we will be holding a whole-school Day of Play in October!

You can read more about this exciting project here.

"We know that play is a critical part of childhood. When children play, they build essential skills such as learning how to solve problems, develop confidence, creativity and resilience, all whilst having fun." (Diana Ringe Krogh, Head of Social Responsibility at the LEGO Group).

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.

Connecting Communities 

We are very proud of our partnership with the East End Community Foundation's Connecting Communities project which seeks to reduce the digital divide within London boroughs. 

To tackle digital inequality in the East End, they created an innovative partnership with the Letta Trust, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets Council, and Poplar HARCA .  

Through this project, in 2024, we identified 60 students and families most in need of support and were able to provide them with a laptop, 12-months’ free broadband and deliver a comprehensive digital training programme.  This video has further details of this exciting project:

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.

Students in Year 6 at Mile End also take part in a Insights Day where they broaden their understandings of what a law firm does and the many jobs involved in this sector.

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.
