The Levels Academy Trust
We are proud to be part of The Levels Academy Trust.
We have worked jointly with Hambridge Primary School and Huish Episcopi Primary School since March 2015. We are supported in this work through our collaboration with Huish Academy, Taunton School and Somerset Centre for Integrated Learning.
The Trust was formed to achieve certain aims and objectives…
- Developing the opportunities for children to work together from different schools and developing joint projects.
- Raising attainment within the partnership through the development of learning and teaching.
- Further developing the sharing of good practice, resources and policies.
- Holding joint Trust staff meetings/training and INSET (all staff, governors etc)
- Developing the extended schools agenda.
- Engaging with the wider community and increasing opportunities and expectations for all children.
Since the formation of our Trust, we have been able to offer a more dynamic and adventurous curriculum to our pupils and better training for our staff.
Joint developments have included…
- Curriculum weeks across the schools providing dynamic training for staff and exciting learning workshops and trips for children
- An annual athletics day at Yeovil Track involving all the pupils in every school
- Theatre trips e.g. – all Year 5 and 6 saw War Horse at the Bristol Hippodrome in February 2015
- London trip including tour of Houses of Parliament and visit to Downing street
- Events across the schools e.g. joint school council meetings/ speaking competitions
- Higher level maths lessons
- Training pathway for trainee teachers
- Moderation and assessment meetings
- Joint school improvement work
- Future developments include joint work with Taunton school. An offer of a Taunton school scholarship across the trust
