Rise News Statement March 2022
RISE MULTI ACADEMY TRUST IS GROWING
We are delighted to announce that the five schools in Oval Learning Trust will be joining Rise Multi Academy Trust this year.
Albert Village Community Primary, Blackfordby St Margaret’s CofE Primary, Oakthorpe Primary, Swannington CofE Primary and Viscount Beaumont CofE Primary will become integral to the Rise West cluster of schools.
Rise have been providing a raft of support to Oval and their schools for over a year now and this strong collaboration is what led to Oval Directors recognising that the schools in their trust would thrive in Rise.
Sue Savage, Executive Headteacher at Albert Village Community Primary, Blackfordby St Margaret’s CofE Primary and Oakthorpe Primary, says ‘Oval Headteachers are delighted to be joining Rise. We have been working in close collaboration with Rise staff and Heads for many months now and have felt incredibly well supported. Leaders, staff and governors are very clear that being part of a large, strong Trust will have countless benefits for our schools and pupils. We are excited about what the future holds for our schools and communities’
Mark Cole, Rise CEO states ‘We are delighted that the Leicester Diocesan Board of Education and the Department for Education recognise that Rise will be a great home for the schools of Oval Learning Trust. We have very much enjoyed working with school leaders, staff and local governors over the last 13 months and we believe this is just the beginning of what we can achieve as a family of schools.’
