All of our schools are fully committed to continous school improvement. As a Trust we strive towards a growing 'Trust dividend' whereby all members of our school community can articulate examples of where our collabortion has offered value beyond that possible from being a stand alone school.
We are delighted that this Trust dividend was recognised by Ofsted in all of our recent judgements.
Blackbrook Community Primary School- May 2023
"The school is led with consideration and compassion. Governors and trust leaders check the effectiveness of school leaders’ actions. They ask challenging questions and hold leaders to account. They know what the school does well and what needs further improvement. Staff appreciate how leaders consider their workload. They are proud to work at the school."
West Monkton C of E Primary School- May 2023
"Staff appreciate the support that leaders, including governors, give them. Staff gain from working closely with others in the multi-academy trust. Leaders provide focused training. They check that this is effective."
Ruishton C of E Primary School- March 2023
"With the support of the trust, leaders are relentless in their drive to improve the quality of education. Local governors and trustees provide the right balance of challenge and support to help the school move forward. Staff feel valued and are proud to work at the school. They say that their workload and well-being are important to leaders."
Selworthy Special School - June 2023
"..this allows governors and the trust to give the appropriate balance of support and challenge to continue the momentum of school improvement."
Stoke St Gregory C of E Pimary School- Jan 2023
"An interim headteacher joined the school in November 2022, as part of a supportive arrangement with The Oak Partnership Trust, a multi-academy trust. As part of the same arrangement, a special educational needs coordinator has joined the school on a temporary basis...The Oak Partnership Trust provides considerable support for the leadership of the school. Governors ensure that this additional capacity is put to good use. As a result, the rate of improvement has increased significantly."
