Welcome to Thedwastre Education Trust
Thedwastre Education Trust is a local multi-academy trust in the heart of Suffolk. Our four village primary schools work very closely together to use the talents within all our schools for the benefit of our pupils.
We are a community of schools striving for excellence for our pupils, staff and communities, providing a broad and balanced education which enables everyone to reach their full potential.
We value every child, parent, volunteer and employee; we aim to ensure all are respected and children show respect to one another, learning to work collaboratively with their peers for mutual benefit. We have high aspirations for all pupils, staff and the communities we serve.
Our core principles are:
Excellence – We strive for excellence in education and have high aspirations for all children
Inclusive – Our schools are inclusive. We welcome diversity and support pupils of all abilities
Community – Our schools are routed firmly in the communities they serve
Collaborative – We actively encourage collaboration between our schools and actively seek out partnership with like-minded schools for the benefit of all
To see more about how our values influence our work, see the "join us" section of this website.
