Trust Welcome

A warm welcome toExtend Learning Academies Network

Welcome to the Extend Learning Academies Network (ELAN). We are a multi-academy trust in North Somerset and we educate 2,700 children in nine primary schools. We work collaboratively and very closely, yet our schools retain their own identity and individuality. Some things just work differently in different schools and we embrace this.

As a trust we are dedicated to providing an EXTRAORDINARY education that empowers our children and staff to achieve their best and always be proud of who they are and what they do.

Our Testimonials

What People Say About Our Community

"Like so many schools considering academisation, one of our main anxieties was keeping our unique identity. We needn’t have worried - we joined a group of very different schools, united by a set of core beliefs and values. We are all so different and as a result we benefit from what each school has to bring – we’re still Green but we choose to be influenced by others’ ‘best bits’.”

Headteacher, Mendip Green

"Opportunities for Continued Professional Development are endless and staff benefit from regular opportunities to network and share good practice. We’ve shared a number of INSET training opportunities that we couldn’t have accessed as a solitary school. Links with The Beach TSA are brilliant. The trust are focused on succession planning and developing tomorrow’s leaders – there are so many avenues for those wanting to experience leadership at any level.”

"The children have really felt the benefit of being part of a MAT. Sporting fixtures come thick and fast and PE lessons have been supported by a PE champion, meaning better quality for all children. Support from our own Education Welfare Officer (EWO) and Advisory Teachers ensures that our staff are able to support our most vulnerable children.”

"As a new headteacher, I cannot put into words the support that I have received from the trust. We set high standards for ourselves and for our schools but it is a joy to have that backed-up by a board that so willingly provide capacity to get the job done. School improvement support is exceptional, as is the leadership coaching and support package provided for heads. That said, by far the most valuable support that I have received is through regular heads meets. Having the opportunity to meet and work collaboratively with local heads is so valuable.”

"The Central Team are magnificent. Like most, I became a headteacher to make a difference for children. The job is complex and of course, there are some duties that pull me away from Teaching and Learning but the Central Team take so much of this away! Support with HR, finance, estates and bid-writing is comprehensive. I’m as autonomous as I’ve ever been but I rarely feel alone.”
