‘with children and young people at
the heart of all that we do’

Welcome to the
drb Ignite Multi Academy Trust

Our approach is simple. We work together as a unique family of primary schools with one aim: ‘children and young people at the heart of all we do’

As Chair of the Trust Board, I am proud to lead a team of committed, passionate and talented staff. We recognise our job is to focus on what happens in classrooms everyday and the right of children to experience a curriculum that excites and allows them to make great progress.

This involves paying real attention to connection. How children, staff and parents connect with each other and how children connect with learning, the learning environment and the world beyond school.

The structure of our family of schools is built to promote connection. We work together towards common goals, knowing that collaborative expertise is a cornerstone of sustainable improvement and high standards.

The world of education is busy, uncertain, and at times daunting. Our sense of shared purpose helps us to listen and respond; offering time, knowledge and effort to each other. This keeps us receptive, flexible and motivated to learn alongside our children.

We have achieved a great deal in a short time. Our culture leads me to believe the greatest impact is yet to come.
