Elm Tree Multi Academy Trust

Our Trust Mission

Supporting all, delivering excellence and enriching the lives of young people   

Our academies are places of educational excellence, where all are challenged to succeed in a caring and supportive environment.

Elm Tree Multi Academy Trust was founded in 2022, now comprising of two schools North Leamington and Telford Junior. Our aim is to work in collaboration supporting all, delivering excellence and enriching the lives of the young people within our family.

North Leamington school is an oversubscribed secondary school with a sixth form with a proven track record of achieving the highest outcomes at both the end of Key stage 4 & 5. Telford Junior school is the largest feeder primary school to North Leamington and as such is well placed to work together to deliver the very best all through education for about 30% our local school community.

We are extremely excited about what we can achieve together over the coming years, our moral purpose is to provide the best all through educational experience possible, where we truly understand and support all students and families.  Schools continue to be the hub of a community, we want to create learners that understand the importance of that community and enrich it at all levels.

Our Trust is outward facing, we are proud to work with a variety of partners to secure the best outcomes for our students. School leaders and the Central team are supported by Local Governing bodies in each school, who ensure each school retains its unique position but adds value to others within our community. Our values, whilst centrally aligned, work for each setting. We have a strong focus on high quality outcomes but also on the type of students we help to create. At North Leamington we drive these through our CORE system of Commitment, Opportunities, Respect and Excellence. At Telford through Care, Achieve, Respect and Enjoy. 

Aims of the trust:

  • Working together to improve pupil outcomes and supporting each school to continue to drive school improvement, whilst levelling up our community
  • Sharing resources and expertise to ensure every pupil gets the support they need in an inclusive environment
  • Working together and in partnership to improve the pupil journey from early years to year 13 and beyond
  • Strengthening the core business function of all schools by sharing and combining common functions such as Finance, HR, Facilities, Recruitment, Purchasing and CPD
  • Supporting individual schools to grow and develop their own capacity through targeted support such as CPD, mentoring and work shadowing
  • Providing appropriate high challenge to ensure value for money and excellent pupil outcomes
  • Working supportively with schools so enabling them to retain their individual identities to best suit their stakeholders. We would align our systems and processes in terms of data management, progress monitoring and evaluation of the quality of teaching, learning and assessment where practical. However, we would also be mindful of necessary differences between educational phases and not implement change for change’s sake. Schools could expect to retain autonomy over aspects such as school name, uniform, a one-size fits all approach would not be used.
  • Our ambition is to be an ever-improving learning environment that offers opportunities to enthuse engage and enrich the experiences of all its community. We will continue to instil a commitment to growth in a positive, dynamic, and respectful environment that expects and supports personal excellence in the context of everyone mattering equally

We have high expectations of our young people, and all of us at Elm Tree MAT work co-operatively with each other in order to strive towards our common goal of developing our pupils and providing them with the right tools to be successful, empathetic, well-adjusted members of society. Our pupils are encouraged to strive for excellence in all that they do at school and grasp all the wonderful opportunities that will present themselves throughout their years of study. We want our young people to aim high, be happy confident learners, support one another and be proud members of our rich and diverse community.
