Aletheia Trust’s Vision

Aletheia Academies welcomes those of all faiths, and we are proud of the inclusive nature and diversity of each cohort. The Trust is motivated by Christian values to embody the experience of the local community; where all gifts are nurtured, expertise is shared and results are tailored. All with the vision to produce the best outcome for each and every individual.

Aletheia Trust’s Objectives

Aletheia is committed to sustaining high-quality schools, and supporting schools in need of specific improvement in some of the more challenging wards in Kent. Our focus is to provide school improvement services that draw on the wealth of practice from across our trust, broaden the expertise available to schools through flexible working arrangements and increase our capacity to quickly respond to the needs of individual schools. Pedagogical excellence is at the heart of all we do with a sustained focus on collaborative and mastery learning.

Belonging to a local Trust offers greater opportunities for influence than single schools can achieve: working together the Trust aims to be greater than the sum of its constituent schools. We see the growth of Aletheia as an opportunity for schools, leaders and governors to step forward as co-shapers of a school-led and self-improving system in our area. The trust offers our distinctive ethos, the strength of leadership and commitment to working collaboratively to ensure all our schools are outstanding.

Why Stone St. Mary’s Joined Aletheia Academies Trust

Stone St. Mary’s C of E Primary School joined Aletheia in 2017. As a school it was felt that it would be beneficial to be part of a multi-academy Trust and Aletheia was a local Trust for local schools which has community at the heart of that it does.

Aletheia was also chosen as the vision here at Stone and the vision of Aletheia were aligned. Our Christian vision, ‘Caring Growing Shining Together’, at Stone plays a large part in what we do for and believe is right for children as they grow, learn and flourish and it was felt that Aletheia would support and compliment this.

Stone St. Mary’s believes that it is better to work collaboratively and the benefits of this seen through working as a Trust, was key to our decision. It was felt that the Trust through networking, support and challenge could continue to ensure that Stone was endeavouring to improve and offer excellent outcomes for its pupils, alongside Stone being able to share their good practice and ideas with other local schools too.
