An Introduction from the CEO
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Stowe Valley Multi Academy Trust website. Founded in 2017, our Trust consists of 6 primary schools and 3 secondary schools. We have one Ofsted outstanding school, 6 good schools and two schools on the journey to good/outstanding. An additional Ofsted ‘Good ‘primary is hoping to join our Trust in this school year. We employ 550 staff and educate 4500 children across our schools throughout Warwickshire and Northamptonshire.
Our aim is to deliver an outstanding level of educational provision in each of our schools, education that inspires our students academically, creatively, physically and in their social and emotional development. We want all our students to become kind, confident and resilient learners. Learners who can make positive contribution to society in the future. We foster a ‘can do’ culture and have the highest aspirations for staff and students and really believe that ‘by being the best you can be’ anything is possible!
For our staff, we aim to create an environment where they feel supported and challenged and where they can thrive as highly skilled practitioners. In our Trust we value the contribution of every colleague, and aim to develop a sense of professional curiosity which will allow them to develop their practice and excel. As with our students, we also support our staff on a personal level by providing extensive wellbeing support.
In our Trust we have a collegiate culture which shares best practice, so that as a group of schools we do not stand still but move forward on a continuous journey of improvement. We encourage each school to retain its individual and unique identity. This is underpinned by the MAT’s ethos of high expectations and our core values of kindness, confidence, and resilience.
The passion, commitment and moral purpose that our school staff show towards our students is mirrored by our highly skilled Central team. In this team we have we have a Chief Finance Officer and Trust Leaders in the areas of Finance, ICT, Safeguarding, Estates & Capital, Governance & Compliance, Social Media, Human Resources , SEND and Primary school provision. Our Central Team works across our schools to provide the infrastructure that enables schools to focus on teaching and learning, and which ensures our students and staff have the most effective working environment possible.
School leaders and the Central team are supported by individual Governing bodies and a strong Trust Board. Our Trust Board has a wide skill set including expertise in Social Care, Risk Management, Education, Policing and Governance. Our Local Governing Bodies are drawn from people passionate about their communities and their local schools.
We are a reflective Multi Academy Trust which cares about the local communities and the people who make up these communities. We believe that by us all working together we can release the massive potential that exists within our staff and students.
