Slide REAch2 Academy Trust WELCOME TO PROVIDING EXCEPTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEARNING

Founded in 2012, REAch2 Academy Trust is the UK's largest primary-only academy trust in the country. It is a growing charitable organisation currently supporting circa 60 primary academies across England.

11 Before 11

11 Before 11 is a set of promises that help our children to be in the driving seat in their own lives. They are a series of seminal experiences that we want every child in the REAch2 family to have experienced before they leave us to go to secondary school aged 11.

"Our passion is for primary education and we believe that children can achieve the highest academic standards at the same time as enjoying a rich, rewarding and challenging curriculum which focuses on themselves as individuals, developing their character and helping them realise the opportunities open to them in the wider world."

Unfortunately, some wording in a recent newsletter to parents lacked clarity. Children who are well and without COVID-19 symptoms are expected to attend school. Asymptomatic pupils with a positive LFT must self-isolate. We understand the concern this has caused and apologise. https://t.co/TZ7DicY3Jw

What links #WinnieThePoohDay and our ECT conference today? In building a teaching toolkit some things can't be found on a lesson plan. Whether it is enjoyment of learning, compassion for self and others, positive relationships or high expectations, love in the classroom matters. https://t.co/83KxoEtOrj
