Thedwastre Education Trust
On 1 January 2016, the Rattlesden Primary School became an academy.
Together with three local primary schools, Great Barton, Thurston and Woolpit, we formed our own education trust, Thedwastre Education Trust.
As small rural schools, we recognise the value in working collaboratively to improve outcomes for all our children.
The trust provides a supportive structure within which we will maintain our individual school identities, whilst offering extended opportunities for all pupils and staff to share best practice and offer challenge between schools.
The Thurston Partnership
The school is also part of The Thurston Partnership, which includes Thurston Community College and all 16 primary schools in its catchment area.
The purpose of The Thurston Partnership is to provide an improved education for all children and young people in the Thurston area.
All 17 schools are committed to working together to improve the attainment, progress and experience of school for all children. All schools in the partnership have agreed that our aims can be achieved by working together and supporting and learning from each other.
Our school is also part of the Cambridge and Suffolk Schools Alliance (CASSA), an alliance of primary, secondary and special schools and post-16 providers from across Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.
Members of the alliance agree that working closely together across all phases with a shared understanding of our students is key to achieving success for all.
