Our aim is to become a strong local partnership of schools.  Whilst we aim to build a strong and cohesive identity, we recognise that each school within the Trust has its own unique characteristics.  Collaboration and joint working ensure that all schools in the Trust can share in, and benefit from, each other’s strengths.  The aim as a multi academy trust is to work together to:

  1. Make a positive difference in the lives of our pupils;

  2. Have an unflinching commitment to closing the gap between high and low performers within the schools;

  3. Transform the learning conditions of others so that growth, commitment, engagement, and constant spawning of leadership in others is being fostered

The vision of the Berlesduna Academy Trust is to create and foster a culture of high aspiration, enjoyment for learning, academic success and lifelong skills amongst all pupils, regardless of their social, economic or cultural background.

Joining a group of local  like-minded schools will enable you to secure and maintain your current quality provision and through school to school support address those areas you identify as needing to improve to move your school to the next level.

If you are interested please contact us to begin a conversation.

Ofsted Upate - Willows Primary School and Nursery

We are delighted to announce that The Willows Section 8 Ofsted Report has been published. Congratulations to all the staff, governors, parents and most importantly children for continuing to be “Good”. This is the Trust’s first inspection. It is heartening that Ofsted recognised the strengths of the school and the improvements since achieving good in 2015. It cannot be underestimated the effort and skill that has gone into ensuring The Willows is building capacity and sustaining its high level of education.

Get your children ready for school by helping them develop their communication, language and literacy skills.

The Department for Education has tips and recommended activities to help you.
