About Us

Who We Are

Southwark Primary School was the founding academy in the Trust. Originally the school converted as a stand-alone academy but expanded to Multi Academy Trust status through the partnership with Arnbrook Primary School in 2014. Originally the Trust was named Southwark Primary Academy Trust.

After making a strategic decision to start to grow, the Board agreed to rename the Trust Believe Academy Trust. The main reason for this was to help establish a Trust identity serving all academies and also to assist in setting a clear strategic direction.

Believe
A Great Place To Work

Leading the way

Believe are leading the way. Again. This is the Trust on a mission to ‘Change the World’ from mundane education leadership after all – and their revolutionary ethos permeates every single Believe Academy.

The whole place runs on pride, passion and performance. From a revolutionary work/life balance ethic to a values system based on respect and understanding, small wonder there’s a sense of togetherness across all the academies.

Governance & Finance

Governance & Finance

Working together in partnership, freeing resources to make your money go further, reducing administrative burdens, investing in ongoing professional development at all levels, connecting the whole of the learning community together, building system capacity, investing in staff engagement, making the school site work for you and respecting academy ‘individuality’.

Believe it. Together we can make a difference.

We have two Schemes of Delegation for Academy Governing Bodies. Both are designed to provide clarity and define responsibilities. The scheme designed for Good and Outstanding academies gives greater delegated powers to the individual academy and its’ local governance. Academies rated Requires Improvement or Inadequate need more support to help them become Good or better, therefore this is reflected in the Scheme of Delegation designed for their current situation. Essentially this second Scheme of Delegation gives more authority to the CEO and Board to help the Headteacher and Academy Governing Body (in this case Academy Council) to achieve rapid improvement. The aim is to ensure that all our Academies operate under the first Scheme of Delegation in time.

We believe that supportive networks, high quality service and challenging conversations are the key to sustainable growth.
