Wolds Learning Partnership
Multi Academy Trust
We believe, as a family of schools with shared values, that we can work together in partnership to provide the very best education for the children in our care. As a collection of community, church and village schools, we are passionate about being part of the communities we serve and wish to ensure our community schools not only survive in the future but continue to thrive. In the current period of change, we believe it is important that we build upon our already strong links and seek together, in partnership, to support each other and to do the very best for our children and the communities we live and work within.
The Wolds Learning Partnership unites a family of schools who work collectively, in partnership, to serve our local community. The Wolds Learning Partnership is a Multi Academy Trust, a Trust that brings together a community of schools, to ensure they retain their own unique ethos, identity, name and Governing Body structure. Our vision is that the Trust will, due to changes being brought about by the national government, become the natural home for schools that will be required over the next few years to become academies. We are also conscious that other Multi Academy Trusts, nationally, may not share similar values and, as a family of local community schools, we believe it is crucial that we remain accountable to our parents, villages and communities. We feel it is important, therefore, that before schools are required to convert, we establish a Trust that reflects our values and ethos to provide an alternate option to the national chains. As a family of schools, we have a responsibility to plan for the future, to ensure we do the very best for our children, teachers, schools and our communities.
