Lantern Learning Trust

Here are some of the ways we have worked together recently

Teachers Collaborating

Each term groups of teachers from the five schools get together to push an improvement strategy. Over the last year we have worked together to develop consistently good procedures for welcoming children who are new to English to make sure that they have a good start in our schools. We have also worked together to develop different approaches to teaching to incorporate co-operation and group work. Working together has enabled us to share expertise and good practice to benefit hundreds of children in Leeds. We also moderate work together as a trust to ensure our assessments are accurate.

Over the last year, four of the schools have worked together to achieve the PSQM - a recognition of the quality science being taught in the schools.See the source image

 

Financing an Educational Psychotherapist

 As a trust, we have been able to put together funds to employ an Educational Psychotherapist who works a day a week in each of our schools.  This has been a fantastic investment, which we would not have been able to fund individually. The Educational Psychotherapist works with children who have been identified by the school as needing specialist emotional support. She also works with parents and families and supports teachers to ensure all children’s emotional needs are met.

Financing a Leeds Rhino Foundation Coach

As a trust, we have also put together funds to employ a sports coach. This has enabled all schools to access high quality sports lessons and clubs every week. The coach also arranges inter-school competitions which are enjoyed by many children throughout the year.

Use of The Edge Swimming Facilities

Most of the Trust schools use The Edge facilities at Leeds University and there is always an end of year swimming gala to celebrate the achievents of our swimmers.

 

Supporting School Improvement

 The leadership teams of the five schools work closely together to help evaluate the quality of teaching and learning in each school and suggest ways in which schools can improve to ensure all children are receiving the best education possible. Having leaders working together as critical friends, ensures that our standards in each school are high and catering for the needs of all our staff and children. 

Purchasing Two Minibuses

Together, we have been able to afford two school minibuses which enable us to take children on more trips to allow for valuable first hand experiences supporting their development. The minibuses are shared between all five schools.
