We are a group of six primary academies working together to provide the highest quality education and outcomes for young people in Staffordshire. We are passionate about Primary education and we have a clear focus on continuous improvement that ensures our children achieve the best possible outcomes in all areas of school life. All our work is underpinned by the Cooperative values.
Each of our academies is at the heart of a community. Each school is unique and individual and we value and respect their distinctive differences. Our aim is to develop and protect their character within a supportive and collaborative environment so that we can learn from each other, share best practice and provide the best education for all our pupils.
The following principles guide our Trust:
- All our work will be based on the Cooperative values and principles.
