The Connect Academy Trust is based in the South West, centred upon Plymouth. The Trust was formed in 2016 and aims to provide a firm foundation for developing teachers and leaders in order to secure the best learning opportunities for our pupils. It operates a dynamic system where each school is a giver and receiver of support.
Connect is at a truly exciting juncture. The Regional Schools Commissioner has recently approved the addition of the 3 Coast Academies Trust Schools (Cockington Primary, Preston Primary and Eden Park Primary) to join Connect from September 2022. Our Ocean Conservation Curriculum is really taking shape and our growing Trust will enable even more children to benefit from this knowledge about climate change and ocean literacy principles. From September 2022, Connect Schools will be educating 3300+ children, successfully operating 3 specialist SEN support centres as integral parts of our 8 schools and providing effective support and development for over 400 staff.
