Welcome to NET Academies Trust. We are a DfE approved sponsor of six primary schools in Essex. As a team of schools we work together to promote and lead innovative practice in order to raise educational outcomes for all children- shaping futures.  

We are as ambitious for the staff as we are for the children in our schools; providing excellent opportunities for continued professional development and staff wellbeing. We believe that partnerships and collaboration to share best practice are the key to meeting the challenge of raising pupil attainment. We are proud of the commitment within our schools, being acknowledged through national awards (TES Employer of the Year 2018, Place2Be Place2Be Wellbeing in Schools Award 2019). 

The Trust provides an effective structure of shared central services, to enable our schools to focus on teaching and learning. This achieves real benefits from school-to-school collaboration and ensuring our schools receive the support they need.  

Our culture of ‘children first, people first’ creates effective teamwork and continual improvement. We are passionate about inclusion for both children and staff.

We share our learning with the wider community and take a system leader approach to help improve education beyond our own network. We encourage an outward facing approach with all of our schools, fostering a balance of autonomy and collaboration.
