Message from the Chief Executive Officer
Our shared vision for the Rutland Learning Trust is to provide first-class education and care that allows every child to achieve their potential, regardless of location, prior attainment or background.
Working Together, Sustaining Excellence, Transforming Lives
As a dedicated team of teachers, support staff, governors, parents and families we work with love, professionalism and commitment on behalf of all pupils to provide educational provision of the very highest quality. By "Working Together to Sustain Excellence and Transform Lives" we believe that we can improve outcomes for all children – today and tomorrow. By working in this way we know that every child will be valued, cared for and have the very best chance to excel and achieve their potential.
“Every Part Depending on Each Other”
In 1 Corinthians 12, St Paul famously compares the Christian community to the human body. Our eyes couldn’t do much if we had no hands, and our head wouldn’t get very far if we had no feet. In the same way, we don’t get very far by trying to do Christ’s work alone! To carry out our mission, we need every bit of our body to work together, because each of us has gifts and our part to play.
“our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. …
In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary. …
This makes for harmony among the members, so that all the members care for each other.
If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honoured, all the parts are glad.” (1 Corinthians 12)
I am immensely proud of our team - a dynamic, high performing and talented community. There is tremendous team spirit - we are all committed to the success of each of our schools and we always put the children’s best interests first. We seek high levels of attainment and achievement across a broad, creative and inspirational curriculum. Memorable learning experiences are at the heart of all we do.
Every child deserves to be successful and our role is to help them blossom and believe everything is possible! Our MAT has a unique way of working and culture that makes us very different from most Multi-Academy Trusts.
Across all of our schools we encourage pupils to be inquisitive and passionate about their learning. We strive to develop confident, creative, self-assured, positive young people who love to learn, to contribute and to achieve. Our inclusive learning environment also teaches our pupils to celebrate differences, help one another and promote a culture of tolerance and mutual respect. Our vision for each child is that they will work towards their personal best, in a caring atmosphere, which reflects the inclusive British and Christian values of our Academy.
Christian values and practice are at the heart of our shared life as Church of England Schools and they shape an enquiring and respectful approach to everything we do. We have strong, well-established links with our local churches and Diocese. However, we also enjoy working alongside community schools, Academies and the local authority.
We are a designated National Support School, have achieved sponsor status and have a proven track record of providing outstanding school improvement and school-to- school support. Our Multi-Academy Trust is also a key strategic partner in the Rutland Teaching School Alliance.
"Excellent teaching gives children the life chances they deserve...
Enjoyment is the birthright of every child. The most powerful mix is the one that brings the two together. Children learn better when they are excited and engaged - but what excites and engages them best is truly excellent teaching."
