Dallow Primary School is part of the Chiltern Learning Trust which is a multi-academy trust currently comprising of 10 schools;

Dallow Primary School, Denbigh High School, Challney High School for Boys, Challney High School for Girls, Putteridge High School, Chiltern Academy, Cedars Upper School, Marston Vale Middle School, Linslade Middle School and Lark Rise Primary School.

The Trust seeks to promote and celebrate the individual and collective achievements of all the schools by providing the very best education and qualifications for our learners in a pleasant, happy and caring academic environment.

The Trust is led by a Board of Trustees which consists of representatives from all schools, with Adrian Rogers as Chief Executive. The Trustees have extensive experience of education and corporate governance and a shared desire for high standards and excellence in all that we do. Each school also has its own local governing body.

Although each school retains its individual identity and history, the desire for excellence and high achievement for all learners, regardless of their background or ability, is the common underpinning feature of all three schools. We work together, using our very best teachers and leaders to raise the outcomes and opportunities for every child, sharing best practice and expertise amongst staff to raise participation and narrow gaps in achievement. Developing excellent attitudes to learning in its widest sense and fostering respect, courtesy, consideration and friendship are also central to the ethos of our school communities. We also work extensively with other schools locally and nationally through the Chiltern Teaching School Alliance and Challenge Partners, a national school improvement network.

The practicalities of the Trust arrangement also enable us to retain a strong central team of specialists with expertise in finance, marketing, facilities management, staff training and development, technology for learning and human resources, helping to ensure that the outstanding quality of teaching and learning is mirrored in the day-to-day running of the schools.

CLT Trustees

 The Board of Trustees has overall responsibility for strategic planning and the setting of policies.

It is managed through business planning, monitoring of budgets, performance management, the setting of standards and the implementation of quality management processes. The Trustees have the power to direct change where required.

In order to discharge these responsibilities, the Trustees appoint people who are more locally based to serve on a board called the “Local Governing Body” which is established to ensure the good governance of the academy.

The Trustees delegate various agreed functions to the Local Governing Body.
