‘To deliver high quality and distinctive educational services that reflect our community.’

The Genesis Education Trust (GET) is the collaboration between 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 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 (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) reports show that each of the schools deliver, within a Christian context, the best educational, spiritual, physical, social and emotional outcomes for children and their families.

The schools achieve above (St Mary’s and St Saviour’s) or in line with (St Margaret’s) the National and Local Authority outcomes by the end of KS2, with high attainment in all subjects and most pupils making outstanding progress. Each school is fully committed in ensuring pupils and staff achieve their full potential: believing in excellence through distinctiveness.

GET is establishing further partnerships, with St Mary’s designated a Teaching School and National Support School. As a teaching school, St Mary’s made a successful bid and is now implementing a Strategic School Improvement Fund (SSIF) bid. There are effective structures for Continuing Professional Development, 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 seven years has been with large Multi-Academy Trusts, community schools, church schools, and all-through schools. Support has included leadership and management, teaching and learning, Early Years Foundation Stage, finances, human resources, and curriculum provision.

Within GET 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 GET is sustainable growth and ensuring that the necessary capacity and expertise is in place to deliver continual educational improvements.
