What is Equals Trust?

A primary multi-academy trust based on the principal of equality.

We work collaboratively together with a clear purpose and direction, where:

  • teaching and learning is at the centre of all we do;
  • children enjoy, and are engaged in, a curriculum that challenges and excites them;
  • we develop responsible citizens who value diversity;
  • we ensure a culture of high expectations amongst all our children;
  • children value themselves and each other, developing the self confidence and resilience to face future challenges;
  • the contributions made by all stakeholders are valued.

We work effectively in school partnerships to enhance our provision by:

  • Extending the learning opportunities and activities for pupils;
  • Enriching the curriculum through partnership working and shared resources;
  • Enabling the greater sharing of excellent teaching and learning;
  • Enhancing the professional development of teaching and support staff;
  • Building mutual support and accountability for Head Teachers and Governors;
  • Securing cost and resource efficiencies through joint commissioning.
