Welcome from the CEO

This is an exciting time for everyone involved in the Trust.

The drb Ignite Trust is a vibrant and successful Trust, determined to raise standards of educational achievement to the very highest levels.

We live in a global society that requires our children to be prepared to think both critically and creatively, solve problems, and to communicate well.

The Trust provides a trusted, local solution, focused explicitly on the primary phase and with a strong moral purpose. It enables us to use our collaborative vision, values and shared drive and determination, whilst respecting the aspects of practice and culture that are effective, distinctive and valued by each individual school community.

Our aim is to grow our Trust successfully but also sustainably. Our plan is for quality over quantity and for opportunities to invest in the people who will secure our future: the children and staff.

The Trust leadership culture is to hold each other to account for our collective performance. Effective oversight, monitoring, challenge, support and accountability are key to our success. We believe that it is only by working in true partnership as One Trust One Organisation, that we will be successful in offering exceptional learning experiences for all our children. Partnership is the key to building a strong and confident Trust.

I hope you enjoy our website.
