Gavin Williamson told the Foundation for Education Development summit this morning that partnerships between schools were “fundamental”, especially in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
He said: “We know that schools benefit from being in a strong family of schools, in other words a Multi-Academy Trust.
And partnerships are also fundamental between schools. We know that schools benefit from being in a strong family of schools, in other words a Multi-Academy Trust.
Multi-Academy Trusts are powerful vehicles for improving schools – by sharing expertise, working collaboratively and driving improvements. It is living proof of the old adage, a problem shared is a problem halved.
This is something we want to see more of, because it shows time and again how the MAT model consistently improves outcomes for pupils.
By 2025 we want to see far more schools residing in strong families than we do today, and are actively looking at how we can make that happen.
Our trust has a single legal and moral purpose: to advance education for the public benefit.
The future is ours! Together we can provide a better future.
