On 1st September 2020 The Oaks Academy became part of The Learning Alliance.
The Learning Alliance
The Learning Alliance is a new multi-academy trust formed on 1st September 2020 as a merger between Congleton Multi-Academy Trust and Knutsford Multi-Academy Trust. The trust consists of eight schools, three of which are primary schools and five are secondary schools, all based across Cheshire and north Staffordshire.
The trust believes in allowing each school to retain its distinctive and successful ethos whilst also being able to support the ambition of individual schools, help children to reach their potential and benefit from the greater resources that partnership within the trust brings.
Our vision and values are:
We are ambitious for all children – our schools share a commitment to providing world-class education while inspiring children to realise their full potential
Our schools reflect their communities – each school has the freedom to determine its own ethos within overarching trust goals
Together we can achieve more – we know that collaboration and working in partnership enriches us all
The purpose of the IEB is to, on behalf of TLA, hold school leaders, and Trust Officers, to account for the improvement in performance of the school. It will ensure TLA receives regular information on the operation and performance of the school. It is expected to affect the immediate recovery of the school, including, as relevant, by:
- Setting strategic and short-term objectives for the school
- Enabling rapid decision making
- Providing support & challenge for the school leadership team
- Building confidence among staff and parents in the school
- Establishing a strong platform for effective governance
