Inspire Partnership

What We're About

The Inspire Partnership is passionate about transforming the future for our children through partnership and collaboration. Placing children at the centre of all we do, we aim to create a climate where excellence flourishes as a result of outstanding leadership, engaging teaching and high quality learning. This comes from a desire to create a coalition for change in all of our schools, building a legacy where pupils are able to fulfil their true potential as learners.

At the Trust’s inception, we recognised each of our founding schools required an alternative approach to improvement which focused more on relationships, connectedness and inter-disciplinary approaches to learning. This is why collaboration is central to our mission. It binds schools together as communities, reminding us that we exist in the People Age. The emphasis on transformation exists because our schools have all required rapid systemic improvement in practice.

Partnership and collaboration apply both to how students learn best but also how school communities become stronger. For example, when children are taught how to work together collaboratively, success is measured through interaction, engagement and relationships.



What are our core values? 

  • Collaboration matters because this creates shared agency amongst staff, pupils and our wider communities. We are stronger together and can achieve more through working in partnership.
  • Excellence in everything is a core value because we believe learning is an artform, measured best through the journey and the quality of the outcome. Excellence is inclusive because it creates a shared expectation in everyone to achieve.
  • Community first connects our mission to transform lives with our vision to ensure pupils have the skills, qualities and attitudes to achieve the very best. Leadership behaviours for everyone are rooted in serving communities, especially those who need us most.
  • Equity for everyone exists to ensure we are fair, enact ethical leadership and strive to remove barriers to learning wherever they exist.
  • Continuous growth applies to us as leaders of learning as much as children discovering the joy of learning. We all have the capacity to grow new skills, learn knowledge and gain new experiences. We grow best in a climate of trust, reciprocity and connectedness.
