About Us

The Staploe Education Trust came into being on 1 December 2012 when Kennett Primary School converted to Academy Status and joined the Soham Village College Academy Trust, which was formed in April 2011.

The Shade Primary School opened as an Academy in 2013. The Weatheralls Primary School joined the Trust in February 2017

The Staploe Education Trust and its partners are committed to the leadership and management of successful and high-achieving schools in our community.  Our schools work in very close partnership and are now known as the Staploe Schools Partnership.

Our Vision

Excellence through partnership: achievement, care and opportunity for all

The Trust serves the communities of the ancient Staploe Hundred. The Staploe schools are located close to each other. The Staploe Education Trust provides for young people aged 2 to 16 with focus on families and the development learning across the school phases in our locality.

Our Mission Statement

Our Trust provides a well-rounded education for the children of our community through every phase of their school journey.   The Trust consists of four schools, and each has its own identity driven by the core values and vision of the Trust.  Together, our four schools provide a high quality pre-school, primary and secondary learning environment for children, with a strong ethos of achievement, rich curriculum experiences and inspiring opportunities.  We also provide a highly ethical culture of support and collaboration within, and between, all the schools, and all staff benefit from creative, research-led teaching and professional development. Together with parents and carers, we work to tackle the barriers children face in their learning and development, so that every child will aim high, remain safe and thrive.  Based at the heart of our community, we contribute to the creation of excellence in education through partnership.

Staploe Education Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
