“How can my school best collaborate with others in a strong and resilient structure to ensure that each child is a powerful learner and that adults have the opportunities to learn and develop as teachers and leaders?”
If this is the sort of question governors at your local authority maintained school are asking, perhaps the time is right to consider joining a multi-academy trust (MAT) and becoming part of a supportive family of schools.
First, we’d suggest you look through this website, and others, to check out all-important values and vision (ours are here) as well as structures and scheme of delegation (ours are here). If what you read aligns with our guiding principles, contact us and let’s talk.
The government’s first Schools White Paper in six years, published in March 2022, would like to see every school to be in, or joining, a strong multi-academy trust by 2030. We are part of the Confederation of School Trusts who have published some useful and impartial advice for schools considering their options including academisation. View their information here.
Ebor is a primary-led multi-academy trust with no lead school. This is one of our founding principles and we know this equality is appealing to many primary schools considering academisation. It also explains why, at 24 schools, we have grown so quickly.
We continue to put the best interests of our children at the centre of everything we do – we know this is, quite rightly, in common with other MATs too, but other ways which mark out Ebor as being different from other trusts include:
We are always interested in talking to like-minded schools about joining us. We’ve produced a downloadable brochure which tells the stories of why some of our heads decided to join Ebor. It will be a useful talking point for your governors and explodes some of the myths surrounding academies. See the brochure here.
Who we are and what we stand for – in the words of our headteachers and governors:
