CPET is an exceptional partnership of like‐minded schools that is leading the way in developing new leadership models for primary education with the aim of achieving the best possible outcomes for all the children in the schools across the Trust.
The vision is to develop a self‐sustaining partnership of schools that provides an outstanding education for all their children by offering a broad and balanced curriculum whilst remaining embedded in the local community.
We believe that children learn best when they are happy, secure, respected and valued as individuals. Our schools are busy and vibrant places where we encourage children to flourish across the curriculum and to achieve their potential. Our expectations are high and the standard of care is outstanding. Staff are very committed to providing the best for the children.
We encourage our children to develop respect, open‐mindedness, honesty and tolerance for others. For each individual child we will seek to maximise their confidence, self‐esteem and independence. We have a commitment to provide an environment where the safety and well‐being of children is paramount.
