Sycamore Trust

What is the Sycamore Church of England Trust?

Christian values are at the heart of everything we do. Our core aim is to provide children of all faiths and none with excellent educational provision within a caring and supportive ethos. We have at the centre of our mission and purpose the belief that every child has a right to educational excellence through the provision of high quality schooling.

The Sycamore Church of England Trust is built from a solid foundation defined by excellent teaching experiences and the shared values of learning, leadership, enjoyment, inclusion, inspiration, accountability and integrity.

These values are at the very core of the Trust, firmly embedded in all of our academies and embraced by our leaders, teachers, staff, parents and children alike.

The Trust is being created to provide clusters of self-determining, self-improving primary schools supported by a network of quality assured services that keep them legal, financially robust and continually improving. Whilst we will be robust in our expectations of improvement in our schools, we allow our schools and their local governing bodies to choose their own pathway to success.

The ethos behind the trust is one of sustainable school improvement; schools joining Sycamore Church of England Trust do so with the prime aim of improving each other so that they can all become great.

By growing and developing our team of talented leaders and teachers, we will seek to raise aspirations for all; pupils will access the very best educational provision, experiences and challenges available, ensuring that all members of our trust community actively engage in learning and fulfil their potential.

  • We expect all our schools to actively support each other and to share emergent and best practice for everyone’s benefit
  • We want each of our schools to assert and celebrate its distinctive identity within this community of academies
  • We are a registered charity, reinvesting any surpluses in our network of academies to create further benefits for all of our children

Every school and every individual is included in this vision. We actively encourage collaboration – and work as a team to create and deliver the best possible educational experiences for every pupil within the Sycamore Church of England Trust.
