The Genesis Education Trust (GET) is the collaboration between the Church of England Schools of St Mary’s and St Saviour’s, in Walthamstow, with St Margaret’s in Barking – forming an Independent Church Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) with a desire to strengthen C of E unity within east London by implementing the good /outstanding provision we offer.
All GET schools have a strong emphasis on being involved in their communities. Current Good and Outstanding SIAMS reports show that each of the school’s deliver, within a Christian context, the best educational, spiritual, physical, social and emotional outcomes for children and their families.
The schools achieve above the National and Local Authority outcomes by the end of Key Stage 2, with high attainment in all subjects and most pupils making outstanding progress. They are fully committed in ensuring pupils and staff achieve their full potential; believing in excellence through distinctiveness.
GET is outward looking in terms of establishing further partnerships. These have included St Mary’s being recognised as a Teaching School and National Support School. There are effective structures for CPD both internally and externally and the GET schools work alongside other schools sharing expertise and good practice through their involvement in networks. Formal support and Outreach work over the past 6 years has been with large MATs, community schools, church schools and All-Through schools. Support has included leadership and management, teaching and learning, Early Years Foundation Stage, finance, human resources and curriculum provision.
Within the Trust there is significant expertise and a strong track record in supporting and working with schools in a variety of contexts. GET schools have a wide range of experiences in moving schools rapidly from requires improvement to good / outstanding. An essential principle of the Trust is sustainable growth and ensuring that the necessary capacity and expertise is in place to deliver continual educational improvements.
