Our Statement

Star Academy trust was founded in September 2016. It is a Multi Academy Trust, and currently works with one primary school in Nantwich. We strongly believe in the powers of partnership and collaboration; we see this as essential in providing high quality education for young people in the future. We are seeking other schools that share our beliefs, ethos and values and hope to develop mutually beneficial partnerships within the trust.

We provide education for children from 2-11 years, based on a broad and enriching curriculum to engage and support students, personalised to accommodate individual aptitudes and needs. We insist on excellence in the quality of classroom teaching, and the trust continues to develop its systems to assess the strengths and areas for development of all staff, operating an evidence-based approach to what is happening in classrooms. Arrangements are in place to offer support and develop staff to fulfil their goals. The school is developing a relaxed collegiate culture in which teaching, and classroom management ideas are shared unselfishly, and challenges acknowledged without fear of blame. The trust sets challenging targets and uses a variety of leading edge strategies to assess and track pupils’ progress. These arrangements are supported by sophisticated information technology to which all relevant staff have access and training. The trust strives to be highly inclusive, having regard for the educational progress, personal development and wellbeing of every student, proving that socio economic disadvantage need not be a barrier to achievement. The school focuses on the professional development of all staff, ensuring it is relevant, continuous and of high quality. Building and retaining links with parents and local communities is an essential component of our schools’ strategy, integral to raising aspirations and ambitions for children. The trust is open to, and committed to partnering with other schools that share its values.
