A Welcome Message

M. PritchardDear Parents and Carers,

On behalf of Pioneer Educational Trust, governors and staff, I would like to welcome you and your child to Trevelyan Middle School. My priority as Executive Headteacher is to ensure Trevelyan Middle School continues on its journey to be an outstanding school, where every child can be successful.  All we do at Trevelyan is designed to achieve our school mission:

We empower successful lifelong learners who are motivated and inspired by their enriching curriculum. We do this by igniting curiosity, inspiring challenge and developing resilience to nurture kind, socially responsible, forward-thinking learners with ever expanding horizons.

Trevelyan is a very successful school and we are very proud of the achievements of all our pupils and staff. We believe in building excellent relationships with all our stakeholders and are always committed to high standards. Rest assured I will work tirelessly with the wonderful staff and pupils, and the proficient, experienced support of Pioneer Educational Trust to ensure the school continues to flourish.  It is imperative that we work together to make our school serve the needs of our community and our young people and I hope that as many of you will get involved in the life of the school as possible. Only by working together can we make sure your child enjoys their learning and develops the skills and knowledge they will need to build successful, happy lives.  

Whether you are visiting Trevelyan for the first time or returning, I trust you will see that we have built on an established culture of aiming very high, and always going the extra mile. Whilst we are very proud of our outstanding practice, there is no room for complacency.  We use inspection and monitoring practices and reports to plan ahead and focus on what we need to improve: we are committed to honestly and proactively addressing any development areas and therefore driving the school on to bigger and better things. Trevelyan enjoys some excellent facilities in well maintained grounds, but it is my view that it is people and ethos that make a school!  In a rapidly-changing world we are privileged to educate your child.  We also believe that all parents should know our expectations:

  • We respect every individual
  • We support every individual
  • There are no excuses for poor behaviour or attitude
  • Every child has the right to learn
  • Every child is expected to aim high and give of his or her best

On joining Trevelyan Middle School, you and your child will be signing up to clear rules and ambitious aims.  In return, you and your child can expect our determination, professionalism, expertise and imagination. I believe that a major part of your child’s success relies upon our partnership with you, so we strongly encourage parents to be part of this journey. If this sounds like what you and your child are looking for, we really look forward to working closely with you.
