Welcome to the Rise Multi-Academy Trust.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We hope you have found what you were looking for.
It is a great privilege for me to be the first Trust leader for Rise. I joined in September 2020, just as Rise was emerging from what was formerly DLAT, the Diocese of Leicester Academy Trust.
Rise is a family of schools. We work with and for each other.
We currently comprise of 13 Church of England primary schools, but as a multi-academy trust we would like to extend our family to non-church schools also. Great strides have been made and we are proud of the fact that all our schools are now deemed to be’ Good’ in the eyes of Ofsted. We want, however, for that milestone to be a marker on our journey, rather than the destination itself. Our family of schools are all different shapes and sizes, serving rich and varied communities and that is one of the many things we love about our Trust.
Our vision and our values show how we place great importance on what we do and how we do it. Our values underpin our interactions with each other and strengthen our sense of family. Children are placed at the heart of everything we do. Our team of staff are skilled, hardworking and committed to developing all of your child, not just their academic ability. We recognise that success for every child will be different and we celebrate this.
We are developing and maturing as a Trust. We are ambitious. We are evolving into a Trust that is led by schools for schools. Our headteachers and talented subject leaders play an active role in Trust and school improvement. Our central team, including me, are committed to serving schools in a manner that enables them to be great schools, doing great things that enable every child in a Rise school to both ‘flourish and succeed’; and ensuring that our colleagues and communities thrive in a similar way.
