The Education Network for Waltham Forest
Supported by Waltham Forest


A federation is a group of two or more maintained schools who enter into a formal partnership. In most cases this will lead to a shared governing body and sometimes there will be an Executive Headteacher.

There are currently four Federations in Waltham Forest, between:

  1. St Mary's Walthamstow CofE Voluntary Aided Primary School and St Saviour's Church of England Primary School;
  2. Davies Lane Primary School, Selwyn Primary School and Acacia Nursery;
  3. Newport School and Dawlish Primary School; and
  4. Church Hill Nursery School and Low Hall Nursery School.
