As the Chair of the Board, I would like to offer you a warm welcome to the website of the Community Inclusive Trust (C.I.T.)
C.I.T. was formed in 2014, founded by Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship (GANF) - Ambergate Sports College and Sandon School. The Trust was formed to ensure our values of Trust, Respect, Outstanding Provision and Personalised Learning remain at the heart of our organisation. Since 2014 C.I.T. has been joined by eight other schools who have the ethos and drive to achieve educational excellence, through a child centred approach, where each individual’s care, wellbeing and developmental needs come first.
The Trustees feel passionately about education for the next generation. C.I.T. strives to be inclusive and to offer a personalised learning experience for all.
This drive for excellence has been recognised in four schools within the Trust being graded Outstanding by Ofsted, results being consistently above the national average and all the schools having significant increases in role. These achievements are driven by a highly dedicated and motivated staff, and a trusting partnership with parents, pupils and the local community. The Trust also ensures all schools are funded correctly, the efficient financial management to resource effectively, the monitoring of how the schools are performing, along with high levels of support and challenge.
The growth of the Trust has benefited each school through the ability to attract and retain the best staff to a growing organisation. The economies of scale which has enabled staffing levels and resourcing to remain higher than if the schools were on their own in these troubled economic times. Through the sharing of good practice across the Trust and utilising the expertise of LEARN Teaching School Alliance, the Trust ensures that staff continue to develop to meet the needs of pupils.
On this website you will be able to find news and information about what is going on within the Trust and through the links, more detail about what is happening in each Academy. You can also find information about our Trust Board members here.
I do hope that you find what you need from our website and please get in touch if you have any further questions or feedback about the work of the Trust or its Academies.
