I hope you find the information you need to help you, whether its deciding on your child’s future education needs, or assessing whether your school would like to join us on our fantastic journey.

As a Trust, we aim to support our schools to achieve excellence in teaching and learning. Both East Herrington Primary Academy and Hetton Lyons Primary School are at the heart of their communities and have the experience and skills needed to stimulate, encourage, develop and grow their pupil’s knowledge, understanding and aspiration. Their OFSTED reports reflect this.

Within the Trust we also have an ambition to develop and grow ourselves, through strategic and local partnerships to make sure our pupils continue to access the greatest opportunities for their future.

As Sue Bell, our Chief Executive, points out, children only get one chance in education. The Trust, through its Members, Trustees and Local Governors does its utmost to support all of our staff to provide education excellence to ensure the best outcomes for all our children are delivered. We are a proactive Trust with proactive ideas, and I hope you will see many examples of this as you explore our website.
