About Pele Trust

Pele Trust is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) formed in 2019. We are a group of 8 schools brought together by choice. We aim to support and challenge our schools so that we provide a great educational experience to our pupils. 


Our Vision 

The purpose of Pele Trust is:

  • To build a learning community, brought together by choice, that enables our schools to support and challenge each other to provide consistently outstanding education  whilst offering a stable pathway for students, parents and staff 
  • To have an influential voice and be instrumental in contributing to the development and enrichment of education in the north-east of England

Our Values

 Pele Trust is founded upon values at both Trust and School level.  Our schools are each driven by a set of explicit values that guide and shape the culture and ethos.  

  • We are committed to pursuing excellence in a manner that we can be proud of and that values every child, pupil and student equally
  • We are committed to acting with integrity and honesty in all of our decision making
  • We are committed to operating with openness and transparency and welcome the benefits of peer review and external scrutiny 
  • We are committed to making a positive contribution to the development of the Trust and recognise that we will receive support and challenge in return 
  • We believe that all individuals should be treated with compassion and kindness 
  • We are optimistic in our outlook and see a positive future for our schools and pupils as we work together to meet the challenges ahead
  • We believe that leaders at all levels should demonstrate humility and a sense of service to others
  • We will seek to uphold and model the Nolan principles of public life, namely: selflessness; integrity; objectivity; accountability; openness; honesty; and leadership
