Western Primary School will be closed to the majority of pupils until further notice. Only pupils of parents in the key categories, who cannot arrange their own childcare, should attend. In these unprecedented times, everyone at Western would like to extend their best wishes to all our families and the local community. Thank you for the support you have shown in recent weeks and we look forward to welcoming you all back to our wonderful school in the not too distant future.

Red Kite Learning Trust

Red Kite Learning Trust

We are delighted to be able to provide you with some information about our new Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) that we feel will bring real benefits to the children and young people in our schools. Multi-Academy Trusts are now becoming a standard part of the educational landscape and the government has made it clear that it wants all schools to be part of some kind of strong partnership in the years to come.

The Red Kite Learning Trust builds on existing strong partnerships between schools and is a response to profound changes in the school system that reinforce the need for schools in a locality to work together for the benefit of all. Experience, both nationally and internationally, tells us that partnerships now need to be deeper and more sustainable and have a clear focus on improving the quality of provision for our young people from age three to nineteen.

We hope you will take the time to read the information we have provided for you and it is useful either to just help understand what we are doing or even perhaps inspire you to consider putting your school forward to join the Red Kite Learning Trust. If you do, our one request would be that you really consider whether you can commit to our values. If you want to work in partnership to create world-class provision for all our young people where ‘excellence for all’ is a reality, please get in touch.

Red Kite Learning Trust publishes the required statutory documentation for all its schools on the Red Kite Learning Trust website. Please refer to www.rklt.co.uk for the Trust’s Financial Statements, the Memorandum and Articles of Association and the Funding Agreement. Details of Members, Trustees and Governors of the Trust schools and their relevant interests and attendance are published on the Trust website and in accordance with GDPR guidelines the Trust’s Privacy Notice is also published.
