Ember Learning Trust

The Governing Body of Claygate Primary School is consulting on a proposal for the school to become a member of the Ember Learning Trust, and details of the proposal and a response form can be found on this page.

The Ember Learning Trust (ELT) is a Co-operative Trust, the founding members of which are Hinchley Wood Primary School, Thames Ditton Infant School, Thames Ditton Junior School, and Long Ditton Infant & Nursery School. Partners in the Trust are Long Ditton St.Mary's Junior School, Kingston University, Surrey County Council, and the Co-operative Schools Network (CSNet).

Claygate has worked closely for several years with the schools in the ELT, and we now wish to formalise and strengthen those links. As a group of schools we share values, principles and professional expertise. Each school in the Trust retains its autonomy and is still maintained by the local authority.

We welcome any feedback on these proposals. There will be also a consultation day on 28th February, when stakeholders will have the opportunity to put forward their views and ask questions.
