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 (September 2021), 7 good schools and one requiring improvement school(June 2017). Our self-evaluation evidence supported by Warwickshire County Council now categorise this as a Good school. We also have a SEND resource provision base in one of our primary schools and nursery provision in all other schools. Each of our schools has improved since becoming part of the Trust and we have many areas of outstanding practice which we are happy to share. We employ 550 staff and educate 4500 children across our schools throughout Warwickshire and Northamptonshire.
Our aim is to be outstanding in every area of our educational provision so that our students are kind, confident and resilient learners, learners who can make positive contributions 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 staff to develop their practice and excel. 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 our group of schools are on a continuous journey of improvement. We encourage each school to retain its individual and unique identity. This is enhanced by the MAT’s ethos of high expectations and 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 Operating Officer and Trust Leaders in the areas of ICT, Safeguarding, Capital, Social Media, HR, SEND, Attendance and Primary School Provision. Our Central Team works across our schools to provide the infrastructure which enables schools to focus on giving students and staff 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, Governance and Compliance.
We are a passionate and reflective Multi Academy Trust which cares about the local communities and the people who make up these communities. We believe that by working together anything is possible!
