Coast and Vale Learning Trust
Coast and Vale Learning Trust is a growing family of schools based on the North Yorkshire Coast. We converted from our lead secondary school (Scalby School), welcomed Newby & Scalby Primary School in 2018 and in 2019 welcomed Friarage Community Primary as our first sponsored school. We welcomed Lady Lumley’s School in 2021, UTC and Filey School in 2022, and our ambition is to continue to welcome new schools into our Trust where we can add capacity, resources, improvement and make sure all our young people have access to the very best education.
We are growing organically and firmly building on the school improvement journeys of Scalby School, Newby & Scalby Primary and Friarage Primary. As a Trust we have added to our central team which includes our Chief Operating Officer, Trust Finance Services Manager and school improvement colleagues working within our lead schools.
Our Trust is currently based at Scalby School in Scarborough with both our founding secondary and primary schools being judged ‘good’ by Ofsted. Our success in making sure that our staff are our greatest resource, with ongoing investment into our teaching and support staff teams has placed us in a good position to meet current educational challenges.
Coast and Vale Learning Trust aims to improve education in the locality through establishing coherent and collaborative practice across schools and other educational institutions in the area.
In seeking to realise its mission statement and achieve its strategic objectives, the Coast and Vale Learning Trust board are committed to:
• The principle of meaningful educational partnership between primary and secondary schools.
• Expanding the number of schools in the MAT where this enhances the education of youngsters already under the care of the Trust and can realistically improve it in the joining school.
• Sustainable and measured growth as a Trust.
• Collaborative working with other stakeholders and institutions for the benefit of local youngsters whether they are in the Trust or not.
Choosing where to work and who to work for is one of the vitally important decisions in life. In choosing to work for Coast and Vale Learning Trust you are joining a team of colleagues dedicated to transforming the lives of 3000 children and young people. Our work is an important part of who we are, how we express ourselves, and working with young people is a tremendous privilege and at the same time a challenge and an adventure.
At Coast and Vale Learning Trust we believe that in order to transform young lives we need the highest quality staff who feel cared for and valued. Whether you are a teacher or receptionist, an IT technician or school leader, we want you to grow and develop in your role and to find your stay with the trust a fulfilling time in your working life.
Whenever you see the Coast and Vale logo you should spot the strapline “where learners and staff thrive.” Many organisations spend a great deal of time and effort in developing a strapline, yet at Coast and Vale we are more concerned about turning the strapline into reality. The word thrive indicates a place of healthy growth, plants thrive in the right environment and so we want to see our schools to be environments where learners (children as young at three up to young people aged eighteen) grow and develop and reach their potential. We also want to place the development of all our staff at the heart of what we do.
