You promote a highly ambitious culture that is captured in the motto ‘new day...endless possibilities’. Your approach, strongly supported by senior and middle leaders, is raising the aspiration of all staff and pupils to be their very best. (Ofsted, May 2016)
Providing for our pupils by providing for ourselves
‘From individual character and expertise comes collective strength and excellence’
In 2013, five local primary schools formed a small Collaborative Trust. As five good schools our aim was "to provide for our children by providing for ourselves". Our school, Belton Church of England, Long Whatton Church of England, Oxley Primary and Diseworth Church of England Primary Schools have been working together very closely and to the direct benefit of pupils, staff and governors across all five schools. At the start of this academic year, we were also joined by a sixth Primary School, St Hardulph's Primary School.
Due to all being 'good' schools, we now receive less support from the Local Authority in terms of quality assurance and monitoring of standards, so we now do this ourselves!
Across the six schools there is a wealth of experience and knowledge that we use to challenge each other in terms of the quality of what we provide for your children.We are challenged as Headteachers and at leadership at all levels. Chairs of Governors are involved in monitoring the work of the Trust at a strategic level.
