Diane Rochford, Executive Head JFK Special School
“This is a great opportunity for JFK to work in partnership with other like minded professionals who care about improving the lives of young people. JFK staff are keen to develop a range of extended professional skills across the different settings, working in close collaboration with the staff from our other schools who have the same shared vision. It's a very exciting journey and one that sees benefits for both staff and pupils.”
Gary Wilkie, Trust CEO and Executive Head Sheringham Primary School
“The expertise in school improvement sits within schools themselves and our structure allows us to support and challenge each other at a far greater level, because all schools in the Trust are mutually accountable for the success of every child in every school. This doesn't mean we are all the same - we are determined that each school within the Trust should retain their uniqueness whilst working together for common goals”.
Raheema Patel, Trust Lead School Business Manager and Sheringham SBM
“I have moved within the Trust from a Year One position at Sheringham to JFK where I now work with pupils with Special Education Needs. This opportunity has enabled me to increase my awareness of working with pupils with autism and also my ability to set personal, challenging but achievable targets. If you have an open mind set and wish to open the minds of young people to achieve their fullest potential, then experience the Learning in Harmony Trust.”
Paul Quinn, Chair of the Trustees
“I am delighted to be involved with the Learning in Harmony multi-academy trust. Our unique approach to education sees all the schools working together in harmony, whilst also celebrating their own individual areas of strength and expertise. Working collaboratively with the established leadership teams at the member schools, we look forward to continuing our commitment to secure high levels of achievement for all students in our schools, regardless of their background.”
Jenni Naish, Chair of Governors at the Greenways Schools
"I am delighted that the Federation of Greenways Schools have joined the Learning in Harmony Trust. The existing Trust schools have offered us a very warm welcome. We may have only converted to academy status on 1st October 2016 but it has felt like we have been part of the Trust for much longer due to the level of collaboration and sharing that has already been undertaken. "
Terrence Nairne, Headteacher Hartley Primary School
We have developed fruitful and mutually supportive relationships with member schools since joining the Trust. Significant work has taken place in terms of developing safeguarding approaches, improving assessment procedures and raising the quality of teaching. In turn, staff from Hartley have contributed effectively to the development of work in other schools across the Trust. We very much look forward to continually working together, to the mutual benefit of the children and communities of all of our schools.
