On August 1st 2019, Watlington Primary School joined the Acer Trust. The key principles and ethos are shared below.
Acer Trust Charter
The Acer Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust founded on collaborative partnership. We believe that, by working together with a common collective purpose of improving learning for all, we can ensure a better education for all the learners in our Trust.
The Charter states our founding principles and will ensure that the Trust remains true to those principles as it grows over time.
Our charter has two fundamental purposes:
1. The first is to protect the founding ethos of the Trust. The Acer Trust was created by schools which believe that a true partnership is one in which all Trust schools have a voice in the running of the Trust and a responsibility for contributing to the improvement of all Trust schools and their communities. We have founded the Trust on values and principles which, we believe, will form the basis of a successful, long-term partnership.
2. The second looks forward. The Charter provides the basis from which we demonstrate our commitment to an educational partnership. The challenge for our Trust is to demonstrate that a MAT motivated by partnership and self-improvement through support and challenge, and which recognises the individuality of all partner schools, can flourish.
