New leadership in Kidsgrove


Kidsgrove Primary School is excited to announce that it is has a new leadership team following the February half term holiday.

The school, which is part of the Shaw Education Trust, has been working with other schools within the family to ensure pupils receive the highest quality of provision; exciting lessons; and amazing learning opportunities. 

Jo Morgan, CEO of Shaw Education Trust, commented: “We believe that strength comes from pro-active co-operation; with staff and pupils working closely together.

“Our collaborative approach enables us to offer pupils the opportunity to further broaden their horizons and raise their aspirations.

“Staff members are able to develop outstanding practice by working closely with their Trust colleagues. This is what effective multi-academy trusts are all about: sharing expertise and developing brilliance.”

Kidsgrove Primary is currently working in formal partnership with leaders and teachers from Waterside Primary School, Stoke-on-Trent, which is judged outstanding by Ofsted and is currently in the process of joining the Shaw Education Trust.

Jo Knowles, Headteacher at Waterside Primary, has taken on the role of Executive Principal at Kidsgrove Primary, commenting: “I am delighted to be working with the fantastic staff members and pupils at Kidsgrove.

“With the support of parents, the Trust and the local community, the school is going from strength-to-strength. We are pleased with the great strides in progress to date.

“This school will become incredible and rooted firmly at the heart of its community. We will work closely with the secondary school to provide parents/carers with exceptional provision on their doorstep.”
