Learners for Life

Red Kite Learning Trust

Red Kite Learning Trust schools work together to improve the learning and achievement of all their young people. The Trust secures excellence for all, providing world class opportunities for the young people in its schools. Its schools achieve this by continuously striving for the best: improving, innovating and reflecting. The Trust is committed to equality of opportunity and to closing the gaps in attainment and progress between groups and individuals within each school and across the Trust.

The Trust aspires to the highest standards of academic achievement. It is also passionate that its young people develop values and inter-personal skills so that they can contribute positively to local and global communities. As a member of the Red Kite Teaching School Alliance, the Trust will share its ideas, skills and experience in the best interests of young people within and beyond its own schools.

The Trust has been formed by three ‘founder’ schools working together at Headteacher and governor level to create a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) structure that combines the desire for each school to be different and autonomous with the benefits of sharing key functions and processes. The Red Kite approach has always been to value the differences and encourage the special and unique elements that each school offers to their different communities. At the same time we know that some of the ‘back office’ functions of our schools can better be delivered centrally and that we can also ensure that all our schools continue to strive for excellence through appropriate support and challenge from within the Trust

Effective governance is at the heart of any successful school, academy or multi-academy trust and we have worked hard to make sure our governance model will deliver this. The format aligns with the DfE guidance on governance in MATs and also draws on the experience of other Trusts across England. More details about the Trust governance can be found on the Red Lite Learning Trust website and further details can be found within the scheme of delegation.  More details about governance at Coppice Valley can be found on our governors' page.
