IFPT is distinct from most other multi academy trusts as we do not believe in educational replication and standardisation. We are an inclusive and collaborative trust, bringing together like-minded people to work together, learn together and succeed together.
Inspiring Futures Partnership Trust’s founder academy, Chepping View Primary Academy, has a long and strong history of working in partnership to support other primary schools in Bucks and beyond to create environments where children and staff can thrive. IFPT carries forward the ethos of its founder organisation with a strong sense of moral purpose to provide the best education for all children. The capacity and quality of our school improvement support service means that IFPT is well placed to enable all of its academies to become at least good and strive to be outstanding.
Through our Teaching School Alliance and SCITT, IFPT brings the benefits of a larger MAT but with a local and personal feel and structure. As our Trust grows, we may develop cluster arrangements across Bucks so academies are grouped together in geographical groups, encouraging local collaboration.
IFPT encourages existing academies to retain their own ethos and unique qualities, offering headteachers a degree of autonomy (where appropriate) in leading their schools, whilst giving them the freedom to focus on teaching and learning. Where academies need support and intervention to improve, it is always provided proportionate to need.
The management fee charged to all academies in our Trust funds our Trust support offer, an offer that is open and honest and focused upon partnerships. Our Management fee is currently set at 5%, and this is variable and depends upon the overall effectiveness of an individual academy. The management fee contributes towards the cost of the following (click on the headings for more information):
