The Consortium MAT fundamental aim is to enhance the position of rural community primary schools in the heart of our communities. We recognised that for our small schools to remain vibrant and viable – closer integration and collaborative working is necessary to ensure that our curriculum is exciting, provision is full and the outcomes for pupils are exceptional.
We exist to support our schools, communities and children not as a business but as a mutual co-operative of professionals. Where our schools share financial, physical and intellectual resources, pooling them at the appropriate level with the primary aim to secure better outcomes for our pupils.
We do not think in straight lines, we have broken free of the local authority concept of school provision; we are risk takers while always remembering that every action that we take is for the sole purpose to adding value to the core offer to our pupils and ensuring that they receive the exceptional education that they deserve.
Consortium offers collaboration, not prescription. We offer choice, not decisions made for you. Consortium was founded on the principle of delegated responsibility.
Every school is an exceptional school, every school receives effective support, every school is in an effective partnership.
At Consortium, we demand the best opportunities for our children and the broadest possible curriculum for them to gain experiences, skills and attitudes that will support their future developments.
