Geographical remit: 


We are a multi academy trust consisting of 16 primary schools working together to improve education outcomes for children. Our schools are mostly located along the South Devon coast, from the South Hams to the Dorset border.

We have a strong record of supporting and improving schools, both within and outside the Trust, and offering great educational and development opportunities to our pupils and staff. We embrace a culture of partnership working and regularly collaborate with educational colleagues and settings outside our Trust 


Our strategic priorities are to improve outcomes at every level, to develop school improvement and leadership capacity, and to maintain strong and effective governance. We are proud that, despite the huge disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we have been able to make significant progress across all these areas.

We are also proud of how we supported our families and school communities during the pandemic. We were able to offer places in schools to all our vulnerable pupils and the children of all key workers who requested it, and aimed to act as a beacon of fun and hope for our school communities. 

In addition, we have developed a new Trust curriculum framework, which has been shared with our schools to help develop a bespoke curriculum for their pupils. We have an ongoing training programme to support subject leaders' knowledge and monitoring of their area of the curriculum.
