Think. Do. Achieve

EMBARK Federation

We are part of the Embark Federation multi-academy trust, which is a family of schools across Derbyshire who believe that by working together as a team we can create schools that ‘stand out’ at the heart of their communities.

We have 4 core beliefs; Family, Integrity, Teamwork and Success that are central to everything that we do.  We also have a core purpose to enable everyone to be able to 'Love Learning, Love Life'.   

We have high standards across our schools but want to ensure that the Primary school experience for our children is a magical time. We have created the Embark Award which is part of our commitment to the wider offer for our children. 

We have a strong group of schools with excellent capacity to support others. We have two National Leaders of Education, two National Support Schools and a National Leader of Governance across the trust.
