The Lantern Learning Trust

We are part of the Lantern Learning Trust alongside Blenheim Primary School, Brudenell Primary School, Little London Primary School and Rosebank Primary School.

Some of the ways we work together are below.

  • Each term groups of teachers from the five schools get together to push an improvement strategy. Over the last year we have worked together to develop consistently good procedures for welcoming children who are new to English to make sure that they have a good start in our schools. We have also worked together to develop different approaches to teaching to incorporate co-operation and group work. We also moderate work together as a trust to ensure our assessments are accurate.
  • As a trust, we have been able to put together funds to employ an Educational Psychotherapist who works a day a week in each of our schools. This has been a fantastic investment, which we would not have been able to fund or offer on our own. They work with children who have been identified by the school as needing specialist emotional support. She also works with parents and families and supports teachers to ensure all children’s emotional needs are met.
  • As a trust, we collectively employ a sports coach through Leeds Rhinos. This has enabled all schools to access high quality sports lessons and clubs every week. The coach also arranges inter-school competitions which are enjoyed by many children throughout the year.
  • The leadership teams of the five schools work closely together to help evaluate the quality of teaching and learning in each school and suggest ways in which schools can improve to ensure all children are receiving the best education possible.
