Kingsham Primary is a proud member of the University of Chichester Academy Trust. As an academy, Kingsham Primary is a state-funded school working with other like-minded schools and the University of Chichester to provide an exceptional education experience for our pupils. We remain guided by the national education framework but have greater freedom to make choices and share expertise and opportunities. We support the Vision of the Trust ‘for all young people to be inspired by an excellent education that raises their aspirations and enriches their lives’ and it’s mission ‘to create a vibrant inclusive and aspirational family of academies, transforming life chances for pupils through excellent teaching and learning.
The University of Chichester Academy Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) and aims to develop a family of c30 academies based on geographical groups in the region. Being part of the Trust provides Kingsham Primary with exciting opportunities to share expertise and resources with other academies as well as to access support from the University and from Trust professional staff.
Kingsham Primary benefits greatly from a continuing programme of curriculum support and enhancement provided by the Trust and expert colleagues from the University of Chichester. The University’s Institute of Education has a distinguished history of teacher training that goes back over 150 years and is noted for its professional learning programmes for teachers and high quality education research. We provide teacher placements for trainee teachers and students enhance our curriculum offer by supporting art, PE, and music projects among other things.
The University of Chichester Academy Trust is a single organisation with a Board of Directors: its members are company directors and charity trustees and the Trust makes no profit.
The Board delegates day-to-day running of each academy to the Local Governing Body (LGB) which reports back to the Board. The level of delegation may be different for each academy. Enquiries about Kingsham Primary governance should be made in the first instance to the Chair of the LGB, Mrs Carol Hughes.
