2022-23 Annual Report

Posted 20th July 2023

From Our Chair and CEO

It has been another very successful year in our Trust despite the pressures caused by continuing funding uncertainty and the longer term impact of the pandemic on our schools and young people.

Schools are facing major challenges including re-establishing good attendance habits, dealing with the growing mental health crisis amongst our children and meeting the needs of our children with SEND when funding just doesn’t meet needs. By working together, we have been able to help each other face these challenges and do our best to protect the education and wellbeing of our children and colleagues.

In this year’s report we have chosen to celebrate the successes of our schools, communities, colleagues, and young people by telling some of the stories from across our Trust.

These stories demonstrate how we are delivering on our Trust goals and show our journey so far, as we work towards our 2025 vision. Our schools are shining lights in the public realm, they continue to provide opportunity, care and support to their communities. As other services have faltered, our schools have become even more important to the children and adults they serve.

There are so many wonderful stories we could tell, these are just a selection, with more being created all the time.

A huge thank you to the entire Red Kite Learning Trust team across our 13 schools and settings who create the success stories.
