Reflecting on year one as a multi-academy trust

School Focus – Wingfield

At Wingfield results at all key benchmarks this year have been incredible and that is testament to the complete drive and determination of all the staff at Wingfield. Our Year 6 performance of ‘The Lion King’ this week again is a statement of our intent and drive – as a school we are committed to ensuring our learners have full access to the arts as part of our curriculum offer.




The Compass Partnership of Schools cares passionately about achieving the best for your child. We commit to this by creating a fully inclusive environment that actively promotes social justice and equality, empowering everyone within our communities. We create challenging contexts for learning that develop your child’s thirst for knowledge. We believe that by encouraging your child to become actively involved in their own learning, they are empowered to question, challenge, imagine and create. This enables them to grow into a responsible citizen who wants to change the world for the better, equipped with a well-developed sense of self-efficacy. Your child’s school develops ambitious, challenging, and creative curricula that enables them to flourish socially, spiritually, culturally, emotionally, and academically. Whilst high academic attainment is important for your child’s life chances, we also believe in the importance of providing a rich experience of the arts and sport. The Compass Partnership of Schools is committed to the very highest professional standards, within a climate that values individuality, and that promotes the unique ethos of each school, sitting firmly at the heart of its community. Through collaboration, we seek to build on each school’s strengths so that we may benefit our broader Compass community.

We are committed to personalised professional learning opportunities that support teachers and support staff in progressing their careers, by improving the quality of the educational experience for all of our children. Observed practice of each other and with each other is central to our drive to build a professional learning community, which harnesses the best quality research and builds collective capital for school improvement.
