Schools within the Grand Union Partnership are on their own journey, have their own identity and are committed to continuing to develop and improve. It is the role of the Trust to work with each of our schools to support, resource and accelerate this journey. By sharing our expertise, working together and being prepared to challenge assumptions we make a difference. We mould the central support we offer in order to have the biggest impact we can for the children in each school.

In the next stage of our development we welcome conversations with schools who share the same passion to deliver great outcomes for children. By working together we learn from each other and add to our tool kit of shared ideas. In that way all our schools benefit from a growing range of strategies to draw on that move learning forward.

Central principles covering key areas such as curriculum design and teaching and learning are shared across the schools in the Trust. Whilst each school in the Trust is committed to these principles, school teams have the freedom to frame their own approaches to deliver them. This encourages creativity whilst providing a well defined framework for evaluating impact across the Trust.

Whilst we're passionate about what we do, we recognise the need for a healthy work-life balance. The time we spend with family and friends helps us to approach our work with energy and enthusiasm. Creative, happy individuals will inspire children to learn and our life experiences add richness and depth to the education that we provide.

Put simply our focus is on learning, for all our children and for each of the school communities that make up our Trust. I hope you find our website informative, please do get in touch if you'd like to pay us a visit and see us in action.
