The Family of Learning

Trust Newsletter – March 2024

Welcome from the CEO

At the Family of Learning Trust, we believe that every child matters. There is a driving determination to ensure that pupils and adults in our schools to reach their full potential. Our ethos is a simple one ‘Learning without Limits’.

We are passionate about making a difference to lives of all our children. We want each of our schools to be the best that they can be and for each child to discover the skills, abilities, talents and interests that lie within them.

Parental Engagement is essential as we work in collaboration with parents. As a Trust we place a high value on clear and supportive communication between home and the school. All our parents and carers are very much partners, fully embracing our commitment to offer a highly challenging and stimulating curriculum in ourschools, delivered within positive and supportive school environments.

Our teachers pride themselves on providing opportunities for every pupil to make sustained progress through well planned highly challenging and motivating lessons.We do not believe that one size (or approach) fits all. We will not ask a school to adopt a single pedagogy, change into a homogeneous corporate ‘brand’ or indeed insist on a ‘central-office’ dictated method of working. We will ask schools to work with each other openly and transparently to share best practice within the Trust’s family of schools.

We believe passionately that it is our responsibility to ensure that children feel safe and secure and that it is our role to instil values within children in order that they go on to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

Head teacherswill be recognised for their expertise and desire to be leaders within their schools and will be encouraged to contribute to the growth of the Trust. For Good or Outstanding schools, joining the Family of Learning trust will not mean that the Head teacher or Governing Body loses control or influence over the school but they willplay a key role in moving the Trust forward. The Trust will work with the Senior Leadership Team to take the back office workload away from their role and enable them to focus on school improvement and teaching and learning.

We are looking for further partners to join us and work with us to provide the very best education for all our school communities. If youare interested in joining our Trust, please contact us, we would be delighted to hear from you.
