Schools - River Learning Trust


Edith Moorhouse

We are a Good-rated primary school in the Oxfordshire town of Carterton. We currently have about 300 pupils, with about one third of those pupils coming from Service Families serving at RAF Brize Norton.

We are proud of our caring and nurturing approach to education. Visitors to our school comment that there is a calm and industrious atmosphere and that the children are polite and respectful.

We became an academy and joined the River Learning Trust in April 2017 after a careful search for a MAT which was aligned with our values and approach.

Our research showed us that the three principles of RLT (Commitment to Excellence; Everyone Learning; Respectful Relationships) sit very comfortably alongside our school’s Core Values.

It also became clear as we discovered more and more about RLT, that the other schools and staff we met were like us: at one meeting for RLT governors, one of our governors said ‘It’s nice to be at a meeting where everyone is on the same page’!

We both gain and contribute from being part of RLT; RLT schools demonstrate excellence in a range of areas and our close collaboration allows us to share best practice with each other and staff have the opportunity to develop themselves and each other, and are encouraged to work towards self-improvement
