The Rutland Learning Trust
Providing outstanding education for all pupils – today and tomorrow!
First-class education and care that allows every child to achieve their potential, regardless of location, prior attainment or background.
By Working Together to Sustain Excellence and Transform Learning we believe that we can improve outcomes for all children – today and tomorrow. By working in this way we know that every child will be valued, cared for and have the very best chance to excel and achieve their potential. We seek high levels of attainment and achievement across a broad, creative and inspirational curriculum.
Memorable learning experiences are at the heart of all we do.
Every child deserves to be successful and our role is to help them blossom and believe everything is possible!
“Every Part Depending on Each Other”
In 1 Corinthians 12, St Paul famously compares the Christian community to the human body.
Our eyes couldn’t do much if we had no hands, and our head wouldn’t get very far if we had no feet.
In the same way, we don’t get very far by trying to do Christ’s work alone!
To carry out our mission, we need every bit of our body to work together, because each of us has gifts and our part to play.
“our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. …
In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary. …
This makes for harmony among the members, so that all the members care for each other.
If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honoured, all the parts are glad.” (1 Corinthians 12)
The Rutland Learning Trust aims to…
Promote real, genuine and planned collaboration - Working Together.
Sustain Excellence - raise standards of achievement for all pupils.
Transform Learning - provide first-class education and care that allows every child to achieve their potential, regardless of location, prior attainment or background.
The Rutland Learning Trust is values driven and educationally led; it aims to provide world-class education and care that allows every child to reach their potential; it recognises the importance of teaching and learning. It operates a robust school improvement system, with the ultimate aim of doing something exceptional for children in our care. All pupils will be safe and all will be supported, whatever their needs.
The Rutland Learning Trust aims for all academies to be outstanding. This means outstanding outcomes for all children; innovative, enthusiastic, well- trained staff that provide high-quality teaching, learning and assessment experiences every day, and pupils that leave education well-prepared for the next step of their lives.
The Rutland Learning Trust aims to contribute positively to the self-improving school-led system in education across this locality. We are committed to adding real value to the community, helping it become even more effective in order to achieve the very best for all pupils. We believe in true collaboration; working in partnership, investing in people and building capacity for long term, sustainable success. Our academies will need to respond to the challenge of creating and responding to this changing landscape.
Our strategy is ambitious and exciting; it reflects our locality and the needs of our children. Our education system is in a state of fundamental change as we move to a self- improving system that reduces central government control in favour of a school-led system. This provides a great opportunity for all of our schools to take the lead and create a system that our children deserve.
Bold and dynamic leadership, at all levels, is fundamental to help transform our local education system. We need to develop and own this new system together and take risks to ensure all our learners, regardless of their starting point or background, have their needs met and thrive in the communities that we create.
Our challenge is to continue our journey in improving systems so that all the academies within the Rutland Learning Trust are ‘outstanding’, not only in terms of their Ofsted judgement, but also in the eyes of our learners, staff, families and our wider community members.
