About the Trust:

Improving Lives Through Inspirational Education

LIFE Academies Trust is an Educational Charity whose sole purpose is to improve the LIFE experiences and LIFE chances of all children and young people.

Operating across Early Years, Primary and Secondary age ranges, the Trust believes strongly in taking a ‘through’ approach to education, minimising the number of transfer and transition points wherever possible, and working closely between schools to minimise their impact when they do occur.

We strongly value the individuality of each of our schools and settings, but regularly share best practice in order to develop common approaches where they contribute strongly to our aims.

Our mission is to ensure that ‘Every Child, Every Day’ receives the best possible experience, no matter where they are located, what age they are, or what their individual needs may be.

To ensure we reach our aims most effectively LIFE Academies Trust uses the philosophy that we want to:
‘Let Headteachers be Headteachers’

Consequently, our approach to providing structured challenge and support to all schools operates to ensure that we get the ‘right people focussing on the right things'.

The Trust therefore provides a number of ‘Central Services’ to schools, including in the areas of Finance, Human Resources, Facilities Management, Clerking and Governance. This reduces the burden on schools to deal with these issues individually and allows the employment of ‘specialists’ within these areas whilst releasing Headteachers and senior staff to focus more exclusively on the quality of learning outcomes and experiences.

In addition, the Trust provides robust educational challenge and support to ensure that the outcomes for children in all areas are high enough. It supports schools and settings to achieve these positively, and intervenes where these are not high enough to secure the necessary improvements.

We believe the power of Multi Academy Trusts can be transformative and seek to use every opportunity available to us to develop ourselves to fulfil the hopes and dreams of each of our children, young people, their families and our own staff members.

Our staff tell us that LIFE Academies Trust is a dynamic, exciting and innovative place to work and that they value their schools and settings. This can only be positive for our children, who tell us they love their schools, enjoy learning and are proud of what they achieve.

These are the aims we want for every child every day - and we will strive tirelessly to achieve that.
