Welcome message from Pat Smart, CEO
Greet Primary School and Conway Primary School formed Create Partnership Trust in September 2016. We were joined in January 2017 by Hodge Hill Primary School and Brookfields Primary in November 2018. Create is a multi-academy trust which is committed to achieving the best for all children across the three schools through a close collaborative partnership.
The three broad aims of the Trust are:
Greet, Conway, Hodge Hill and Brookfields Primary work closely together - developing policies, sharing good practice and supporting and challenging each other. We want to see every child receive a broad and balanced education, be happy and safe and well prepared for moving on to their secondary school.
We are also very committed to developing our high quality staff and leaders who work hard individually and in their teams. The Trust supports their skills development and helps them to identify a career path so that they can be even more effective in ensuring that the children make best progress personally, academically and socially.
I am the CEO with responsibility for the whole of the Trust - the four schools and Greet Teaching School which has a special designation to be outward-facing in order to bring more teachers into the profession, to develop leaders and to provide support to other schools in Birmingham by working closely with external partners, such as the Birmingham Education Partnership.
We are building Create by focusing on trusting relationships as the root of all our work. We have high expectations of everyone and we are never complacent - constantly striving to improve on our previous best. We are creating futures for everyone - our staff, our families and communities and, of course, our children.
We look forward to a positive future, great collective achievement and working with our schools, families and communities in partnership. We are stronger together.
