For the first time, we’ve produced a newsletter to share all the fantastic things that we have been doing at Wise Owl Trust over the past 12 months. Although, we have had to condense it, because we have done that much, we simply couldn’t fit it into a newsletter! This will be the first of our annual […]

Our children returned from a residential and came straight to my office to ask when they would be doing the ‘Mission’ that they had missed! It’s brought a whole new sense of excitement to the school.
Children that have previously been dis-engaged in their learning have been re-ignited and inspired. Monday’s have become Mission Monday’s and is the perfect start to the learning week, not just for the children but also the staff!
Chris described our new RESPECT curriculum as ‘transformational to the life chances of our children, preparing them for future challenges.
Debbie Frater believes that the new approach to the curriculum will have a huge impact across all classrooms.
The children take part in interesting and fun missions. I hear all about it at home.
My daughter enjoys the missions and working in her special mission book.
I like the different homework options for my child’s homework. I think its great that they get a choice and they always want to do their homework!
You never get anything from Baz about his day in school but he got a postcard home about his curriculum work. I thought it was a really nice touch. It made him really pleased too!
They seem to learn really interesting stuff now not like your normal curriculum stuff. I have 3 children in school, all a year apart so previously I have known what is coming but that’s not been the case this year. Eesa loves learning about the Queen she comes home every night saying do you know…… She seems to have a new fact everyday!
I have noticed a difference in Millie. With Millie you have to really hook her in and this new curriculum has really got her hooked. There’s been a massive amount of change in school and it all gets a big thumbs up from us. I think the school is great now!
One Education have worked alongside the Wise Owl Trust since its inception and are proud to support this Multi Academy Trust with its continued growth. Our services compliment the Trust’s aims and ethos by supplementing their leadership and wider staff skill sets with our specialist services as and when required. The desire by the Trust to have excellence for all truly reflects our belief in putting children first.
Commando Joe’s works in over 350 schools nationally and we have had the pleasure of working with the Wise Owl Trust for more than 2 years. Working with a school that is so passionate about making school the best it can be for its children, parents, teachers and the community is amazing. The WOT has supported and helped CJ’s develop our new innovative Character curriculum. Combining our Top Secret mission’s with outstanding resources and cross curricular links is testament to the schools leadership, passion and drive to make sure no child is left behind.
As the education professional charged with challenging schools within the Trust to improve their performance, I have always felt that my judgements and views are respected and that the recommendations I make are followed by Trustees and school leaders. I am always made to feel welcome by staff and pupils in each Trust school. The Trust motto – Together Everyone Achieves More – is evident in all Trust schools as leaders and their staff constantly strive to provide their pupils with the best possible quality of education socially, emotionally and academically. There is an unrelenting drive for improvement in each school to meet the needs of every in a simulating and caring learning environment. Leaders and staff create excellent role models for pupils through their attention to detail and dedication in their roles.
We have worked with the Wise Owl Trust for a number of years with Seymour Road Academy being one of the first schools in Manchester to join us. Knowing that school life is about far more than simply academic achievement, The Wise Owl Trust deliver a powerful approach to pedagogy which centres wholly around the 360 degree view of each and every child. The Behaviour Hub nurtures those that require a bespoke style of learning whilst the classrooms across the trust are buzzing with engaged, happy and safe learners. The Trust uses CPOMS to ensure that the recording of safeguarding and pastoral information results in the right people being informed in order to meet every childs needs. Working together, we ensure that every child is fully supported in every aspect of school life. We are proud to be part of the wider Wise Owl Trust family.
