Leading successful learning

Core Principles

In establishing our trust we have defined some fundamental key principles as our working code of practice. These principles are evident in our policies and any schools joining our partnership must show that they also advocate and support them. 


The Oval Learning Trust carries out its work ensuring:


  • children’s learning & well-being is at the heart
  • financial transparency, efficiency and effectiveness
  • local solutions with moral purpose and integrity
  • a strong belief in collaboration & partnership working
  • openness, honesty, mutual respect and challenge
  • respect for the individual ethos & character of schools


All schools joining our trust will have already established their support and belief in these core principles.
