Voice Education Trust
We are part of the Voice Education Trust - a group of schools who formed a Trust back in 2008.
Other schools in the Trust are The Orchard, Chandler’s Field, and Hurst Park - all local to this area.
Each school in the Trust has two Trust governors, who sit on the Voice Education Trust Board. Also on the board are the headteachers from each of the schools, who are in turn directors of the Trust.
Currently, our two Voice Education Trust governors are Mr T. Eckes and Mr J. Gravil.
Our Values – Our Core Purpose
- Each school in the VET wants the same thing for every child in their school.
- We passionately believe in the development of the whole child through nurture, and know this is the most effective route to excellent outcomes for each child.
We want every child to be ambitious, happy, safe, curious, outward facing, optimistic- and to learn without limits.
What do our children gain from being within the VET?
- Staff share training - maximising good practice
- Cross moderation is embedded, helping raise standards
- Staff share expertise-supporting each other through new developments in curriculum and assessment, building local networks of shared expertise
- Children are offered broader cultural and sporting opportunities- shared events making good use of economies of scale
- Children join with other local groups to develop a stronger sense of community- growing the skills needed to become active tolerant and useful local citizens of the future
