The Community Inclusive Trust (C.I.T) is a multi-academy chain that challenges and supports its academies to provide the highest levels of education and care for their pupils. The Trust currently has 11 academies across Lincolnshire.
Formed in 2014, C.I.T was founded by two outstanding schools, Ambergate Sports College and Sandon School (Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship – GANF). The Trust now consists of 4 primary schools, 7 special schools, and a Teaching School – LEARN Teaching School Alliance.
Across C.I.T we work together through the sharing of staff, expertise, pooling of resources, and the development of each other’s strengths so that all employees and pupils have the chance to reach their full potential.
Why specialising in Primary and SEN?
We believe there is a need to inject choice into the present arrangements for primary schools and SEN provision. We understand the focus of the unique role of primary education in improving the life chances of all children.
Why minimal intervention?
We demand high performance from our academy schools but we recognise that each school’s individual journey to success will differ based on its context. Consequently, we challenge and support our academies to provide the highest levels of education and care for pupils. We encourage diversity and allow local governing bodies the freedom to manage in the best interests of their community.
