  • What our schools say

    "The Attenborough Learning Trust has given me the opportunity to work across other schools. Schools can sometimes be an inward looking environment, so being given the chance to work with others to both support and learn is invaluable. It has helped with the school’s improvement priorities, both for myself and other senior staff who are responsible for different areas."

  • What our schools say

    "The family support worker has helped me a lot. Covid made me lose my job and we struggled to keep our home. She helped us get some money and sort a new home. I don’t know what I would have done without her!"

  • What our schools say

    "It has been good to have support on the end of the phone for any issues we have had. My workload has changed and role has developed due to the school’s Business Manager and the involvement with the ALT. I can always ring someone for advice."

    - Green Lane Teacher

  • What our schools say

    "As a teacher I have noticed many positive changes from being part of the Attenborough Learning Trust. We have more peer challenge through working with teachers from other schools to moderate work. The Trust has supported the school to make some financial decisions that have meant more resources, some changes to the building and different ways to make our curriculum exciting for the children."

    - Teacher, Sparkenhoe Primary School

  • What our schools say

    "Trust moderation meetings have enhanced teacher subject knowledge and outcomes for children."
