Enrich Learning Trust

Welcome to Enrich Learning Trust

We are building a collaborative family of schools. They all have a relentless drive to challenge, develop and innovate to ensure that what they provide enables young people to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. With a model based on support and empowerment within a framework of high accountability, we want our Academies to be the best and inspire each child to discover the skills, talents and interests that lie within them.

A family of schools

We operate in an inclusive and collaborative manner, with schools and with their wider communities.

Enrich Learning Trust celebrates the proud and individual identities of member schools, providing bespoke support and challenge to strive for the best outcomes for all children, developing and nurturing the whole child, creating a purposeful and happy family of schools.

No two schools are the same. That’s why our approach is to develop a custom-built package of school improvement challenge and support, based on a thorough needs audit, and adjusted and developed each year. High-performing schools may only require a ‘light touch’ whereas other schools will benefit from more intensive challenge and support in order to bring about rapid improvement in outcomes.

We believe schools should maintain their distinctive identity and core values, share their strengths and expertise with others, and benefit from a wide network of senior leaders, teachers, support staff, governors and longstanding arrangements with respected external advisers. Where areas for further improvement and development are identified in individual schools, we can draw on this wide range of expertise to provide early, targeted and effective support.

Educating with Integrity

 

We look to inspire and grow aspiration among students, staff and our communities, across all ages.

We respect young people, promote their wellbeing and help them to become well-rounded individuals.

We challenge and support our members and our staff to be outstanding for the benefit of all students.

We are open, honest and transparent, with trusted and proven finances and governance.
