Churchend Primary Academy

Be the best possible version of yourself

Orchard Learning Alliance

Churchend became a Stand Alone Trust in 2011 and has been able to develop into a strong and knowledgeable Trust. Therefore, it’s logical next step was to join a forward thinking group of schools to become a founding member of the Orchard Learning Alliance.

At Churchend we recognise the importance of working together to share good practice and gain expertise to ensure that all children, regardless of their starting point, achieve the best outcomes. The Orchard Learning Alliance offers a strong and robust School Improvement model at its core and Churchend Primary Academy is proud to work with other members of OLA to continually learn and grow so all children receive a high quality education.

As a founding member of the Orchard Learning Alliance, Churchend has been able to collaborate with a wide range of schools to co-design the systems and structures of the Multi Academy Trust so that children across the Trust benefit from exceptional teaching. At Churchend we know that openness and trust from all school leaders, teaching staff and educational professionals creates a knowledge rich culture where all children are able to flourish and their skills and talents are unlocked.

The Orchard Learning Alliance offers a wide and extensive range of professional learning networks from which Churchend is both able to learn from and contribute to so that educational practice is shared and enhanced. This is one of the huge benefits to be gained by working collaboratively while still retraining our unique identity and serving the needs of our local community.
