The Small Schools Multi Academy Trust was formed in 2015 and consists of The St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School, The Richard Crosse Church of England Primary School and The Howard Primary School. St Mary’s and Richard Crosse have been working in partnership since September 2007 and The Howard Primary School joined the ‘Federation’ in September 2014.
At their most recent Ofsted inspections, whilst the schools were maintained by Staffordshire County Council, the schools were graded as follows:
St. Mary’s Church of England (A) Primary School, Good with Outstanding Features – June 2018
The Richard Crosse Church of England Primary School, Outstanding – October 2011
Howard Primary School, Good – May 2018
It is our ambition that the three schools will be graded as Outstanding when they are next inspected.
We work closely with schools in Rugeley and Lichfield along with schools in the John Taylor High School and Rawlett High School pyramids.
