The proposed alteration is together with one or more of the proposed partners to acquire a trust established otherwise than under the School Standards and Framework Act 1998.
The name of the foundation is the Sutton Education Trust and the proposed implementation date is 1st February 2017.
It is proposed that Amy Johnson Primary; Beddington Infants; Culvers House Primary; Dorchester Primary; Foresters Primary; High View Primary; Muschamp Primary; Nonsuch Primary and Sherwood Park Primary will become a member of the Trust, nominating two trustees. The partner in the Trust, nominating one trustee, is the co-operative movement currently represented by the Co-operative College.
All parents/carers and learners attending a Trust school are eligible to become members of the Trust. This is also true of all members of staff employed by Trust schools and members of a range of community organisations supporting the work of the Trust. Family members of our pupils and past pupils as well as individuals living or working locally who identify with what the trust is seeking to achieve can also join the Trust. It is proposed to establish a Trust Forum whose members, including parents, staff, learners and representatives of the community – both organisations and individuals - are elected from the respective membership constituency. The purpose of the Trust Forum will be to hold the Trust to account, to help shape policies and to appoint a minority of trustees.
Key aims for our Trust are to: Further improve outcomes for all our learners in all our local schools with a strengthened focus on school-to-school self-improvement; Support each school to become - and then remain, excellent; Strengthen our ability to work collaboratively and co-operatively to enable our schools to grow, develop and improve together; Formalise and further develop arrangements already in place for joint working; Develop further the skills and expertise of staff across the schools; Further share resources and skills across the schools; Further increase levels of aspiration across our school communities thereby impacting positively upon standards.
As a co-operative trust, the Trust has adopted the values and principles of the co-operative movement. Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.
