Vision for John Keats School – part of the Communitas Education Trust

Our vision is that schools within the Communitas Education Trust will act as a positive catalysts for change and improvement within their community.

Serving our community is a core feature of our vision. We plan to work collaboratively and build strong working relationships locally, nationally and internationally with other schools, Southwark Local Authority, Southwark Teaching Schools’ Alliance, local nursery provision and Goldsmiths College. We already work collaboratively with leaders and teachers in other schools and we strongly believe that such collaboration has many benefits for all involved

Communitas Education Trust proposes the establishment of a new Primary Free School, John Keats Primary School, in Bermondsey, close to the heart of the London Borough of Southwark. This school will be led and managed by the leadership and Trust board who currently manage John Donne Primary School in Peckham.

The schools in the Trust will be linked through their shared governance, vision, ethos, structures, services and pedagogy. Staff at the new school will work closely with existing leadership and staff at John Donne School in order to ensure that children experience exciting and enjoyable educational experiences.

The new school will offer a different approach to education. It will have a nurturing ethos and culture. It will provide significant support for families through before and after- school care, advice on housing, immigration, health, parenting advice, return to work experience and training. It will support pupils` learning through support for parents, easy access to staff and school leaders and a friendly and supportive atmosphere in school.

There will be a high profile given to adventure learning and physical activity. Children will learn by doing, by being active, by going places and by designing, creating and making things.
We aim for all children to achieve significantly above national average at KS2
