A welcome from Canonium Learning Trust

Finchingfield St. John the Baptist C of E Primary Academy is part of the Canonium Learning Trust group of schools.

The Trust’s mission is to create a sustainable future for learning in challenging settings through the strength of collaboration and by creating the environment in which each individual school can thrive.

What this means is that Finchingfield will be supported to be financially sustainable through creative problem solving and their collaboration with the Trust so that teachers, pupils and the local community will be able to deliver the unique learning experience that they want. Finchingfield will remain a unique school, but will not be alone.

Teachers will have the opportunity to develop their teaching skills and thinking by training with a wider group of teachers and by sharing good practice and experiences. There will be more opportunities for teachers to develop their careers without having to leave the school. Pupils will have the opportunity to share their learning with children in other schools.

The Trust will achieve this by living their values:

Respect – Valuing the contribution that every employee and volunteer makes to learning

Honesty Working as a team to support each other to deliver an inclusive education

Perseverance – Relentlessly finding ways to remove the barriers to teaching and learning

Trust – Continually seeking improvement for every school at a local level

I very much look forward to being part of your child’s learning journey and in watching them thrive throughout their time at Finchingfield.

A welcome from the Head of School

Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my warmest welcome to you and your family. Developing a love and enthusiasm for learning is the top priority for the school, giving the children opportunities to thrive and grow in a safe and caring Christian environment.

We have a small but very dedicated team of staff and volunteers who work exceptionally hard to enrich the lives of our children and their families. We endeavour to find areas in which every child can shine and we nurture and encourage children to identify their own areas of strength.

I look forward to discovering all about your child and supporting them to grow.
