Pennine Academies Yorkshire

Formed in 2018, Pennine Academies Yorkshire comprises six primary schools and considers every school that is part of the Trust a family member. Our values are centred around the diversity of our schools and how this strength can help all of us to grow together to provide the best possible outcomes for pupils, ensuring that every child makes exceptional progress in their academic and social development. We work in collaboration with one another, supporting one another and sharing best practice whilst respecting each school’s autonomous rights. This is not a one size fits all Multi-Academy Trust!

We have a particular care for our pupils who have additional needs. We recognise this is a growing area of need both locally and nationally. All schools in the family are wedded to the principles of inclusion. It, therefore, stands to reason we should make the maximum effort to make pupils with additional needs even more welcome, remove more barriers and ensure their future success. We host 3 SEND Additional resource provisions.

We have a great central team who support our schools with school improvement, finance, HR, estates, ICT and SEND. They also set the strategic vision for the Trust.
