A warm welcome
I am proud to lead the wonderful seventeen church and community primary schools that are St Christopher’s Trust. The trust began in 2013 and serves communities within Devon, Plymouth and Torbay. At the core of our vision is the desire to celebrate the uniqueness of each school setting and enable them to flourish. This means that you shouldn’t really see much of the Trust as it works in the background, providing support and challenge to ensure the very best provision for every pupil in our care, no matter which school they attend.
The Trust has a board of directors who hold me to account for the day to day working of the Trust and in turn the board has delegated a range of decision-making abilities to each school’s local governing body. We believe local governance empowers the Trust by encouraging local oversight and feedback.
During this highly unusual time of the Covid 19 pandemic, all our schools remain connected to our pupils and their families. Each school is dedicated to supporting key workers and vulnerable pupils with on-site provision where needed and every school has tailored online learning to suit its community and context.
We are a Trust that believes that we are stronger together, through our commitment to collaborating in humility and respect, including everyone. We are stewards of our schools which have been entrusted to our care. It’s a privilege and honour to serve each locality and we do so from a secure Christian foundation that is St Christopher’s Trust.
