The Evolve Trust offers high quality teaching and learning. Sadly, there still remains too many schools with thousands of pupils who are not receiving the level of teaching and learning they deserve.
The Trust aims to have up to ten schools in Mansfield and the surrounding area. This will include primary, secondary and special schools. Given the collaborative model of the Trust, a maximum of 1 hour travelling time between academies within the hub has been identified. The Trust intends to grow through the sponsorship of under-performing schools and The Trust has no current plans to expand outside of the region.
The expanding MAT of this size will inspire greater collaboration and innovation, built on current good practice.
When a school is proposed to be part of our MAT we consider:
However, our moral obligation to raise standards and address under-performance remains the overriding consideration.
Our intention and ambition is to create a network of outstanding schools that thrive through collaboration and interaction.
We feel a sense of responsibility and obligation to expand. We will only expand when we have the capacity to do so. It is the responsibility of the Trust to build capacity as it develops.
Our Trust will serve a range of communities including those with high levels of deprivation.
