At the Rainbow Education Multi-Academy Trust we have ambitious aims for all of our schools, now and in the future.

Our formal school improvement structure means that we share human and physical resources to benefit all pupils, families and the wider communities who attend a school within the Trust.

While all of our schools will focus on high quality teaching, each will continue to develop their own unique characteristics and ethos, maintaining a strong, individual identity within their respective communities.

Each will have its own development plan, underpinned by a clear leadership structure and effective school-to-school support.

We place a sharp focus on the teaching of basic literacy and numeracy skills within a rich curriculum, which enables children to understand why learning is important and what they need to do to achieve their full potential.
