EDUCATION SOUTH WEST
BENEFITS OF BEING PART OF ACADEMY SOUTH WEST
One of the benefits of your child joining us at Blackawton Nursery is that they will become part of a family of schools under the umbrella of Education South West. Whilst maintaining our school’s unique identity we also value the contribution each of our school communities makes and the distinctive opportunities and diversity it offers to the Multi-Academy Trust.
Working as part of a wider multi-academy trust provides the staff with opportunities for collaborative working. The staff in each school work together across the age-phases for training, joint-initiatives, sharing expertise and resources, and moderation. This not only provides your children with the development of excellent staff who secure the highest possible standards in teaching and learning but also staff who are supported in their professional development.
Education South West was formed on 1st January 2017 through the merger of two existing Multi Academy Trusts, Academies South West and Templer Academy Schools Trust.
The founding schools are all in South Devon and are a mix of primary, all-through and secondary schools.
Primary Schools: Christow, Blackawton, East Allington, Kingswear, Rydon and Stoke Fleming
All-through schools: Dartmouth Academy
Secondary Schools: Coombeshead Academy, Kingsbridge Community College and Teign School.
