What we stand for

Our values and vision

Support our academies, staff and pupils in their journey to sustained outstanding performance through partnership, support and collaboration.

Understand our communities in order to maximise our potential to raise aspirations and outcomes for our staff and pupils.

Aspire to a sustainable future for our academies so that outstanding achievement and progress can be secured for generations of pupils.

 Train and support all staff so that they can be inspirational leaders and outstanding practitioners, within a planned framework of support for their well-being.

Our Academies

St. Edward'sC.E. Academy Cheddleton

Our Distinctiveness as a Church School;  with respect to the original ‘trust deed’ agreed by Rev Henry Sneyd, the school retains its status as a Voluntary Controlled Church School [please see attached leaflet for further information on Church Schools] and has at it’s heart the values promoted by Christ, as shown in the Bible.  this is expressed in our distinctive culture, where everyone is viewed as being important and is ascribed status and value from the youngest to the oldest.  We are a school that listens, strives to include and develop all people and aims for the very highest; always looking for the next step to improve.
