Our Approach

We aim to ensure that in everything we do, the philosophy of Children First comes through.   This mindset allows to deliver the best possible opportunities and life chances for our young people.

We do not mandate a consistent identity to each of our organisations - we believe and cherish the inidividual identity of our nurseries and schools, the characteristics of our communities, and the often loved history of the settings. 

However, we are robust in ensuring that the hopes, aspirations, and yearning for learning are consistent across the Trust. 

Characteristics that are common across our Trust, and are a key feature of the way we work are:

  • Striving for excellence in academic progress
  • Mutual respect
  • Focus on literacy and numeracy
  • Effective local governance
  • A mindset of "no child left behind"
  • Working together
