Executive Principal’s Introduction

Kim Docking

Executive Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to Inspire Education Trust Website which provides key information about the Trust which came into existence on 1st September 2015. Initially set up as a Federation between Walsgrave CE Primary and Clifford Bridge Primary in 2012 we were joined by Sir Frank Whittle Primary in 2013. The Multi Academy Trust was established in 2015 to include Clifford Bridge Academy, Walsgrave CE Academy and Whittle Academy. In September 2015 we provided leadership support at Hearsall Community Primary School and on 1st April 2017 Hearsall joined our MAT as Hearsall Community Academy.

The vision for our MAT is

‘Together we achieve, individually we grow’

We aim to ensure that our academies will provide an environment which is welcoming, caring and purposeful where we will encourage our pupils to be the best they can be whilst supporting them pastorally and helping them develop socially. We want our children to enjoy school, have fun and develop a love of learning.

We have a strong board of Directors and Members who hold the schools to account and work closely with the Local Governing Bodies of each school who support and challenge the outcomes and quality of teaching and learning. We have strong links with Coventry Diocesan Board of Education reflecting the church status of Walsgrave CE Primary.

As schools, we are committed to sharing the good practice that exists in all of the schools and we have numerous opportunities for joint training days and shared professional development for support and teaching staff across the MAT. Staff have welcomed this collaboration and we have retained quality staff and promoted from within.

We strive to maintain academies which will retain their own independent culture and ethos whilst operating within a strategic partnership to improve quality, share best practice and operate effectively and efficiently. We firmly believe that

“Expectations Shape Outcomes”

and we expect the very best for all members of our school’s communities.
