Together we make a positive difference

Formed in 2014, The Mead Educational Trust (TMET) is a well-established, respected multi academy trust in Leicestershire, with a growing family of primary and secondary schools.

TMET exists to make a positive difference to the life chances of children and young people and to our wider community.

At the heart of all we do is a commitment to provide our pupils access to a world-class education, our schools with excellent school-to-school support, and our staff with high quality professional development.

We value cross phase work and have deliberately recruited a mix of primary and secondary schools into the Trust. All our schools have common values and core operational systems, applied locally with adaptations for individual contexts and needs.

Through our SCITT and Teaching School we provide excellent professional development opportunities and actively spot and nurture leadership potential.

At the helm of our Trust is a group of carefully chosen trustees, leaders of education and key leaders within both the wider and business community. These conscientiously selected guardians of our Trust, supported by our core central team and effective business management systems, ensure that we keep exceptional education provision at our core. 


Our Mission

Our family of schools are united in the belief that together we make a positive difference.


Our Vision

To enable our pupils to become knowledgeable, conscious, compassionate and happy people who will make a positive difference wherever life takes them.


Our Values

The Mead family of schools have developed a set of guiding principles (the 7Cs) that define who we are and help to guide us in all that we do. These are:

Challenge: Providing an excellent education by having high aspirations for all. Providing a platform for pupils to challenge themselves and others, so they can become the best they can be and contribute actively to society.

Creativity: Providing pioneering, vibrant and transformative learning experiences that are open to all. Offering a well-researched and evaluated curriculum, which acts as the catalyst for personal growth.

Culture: Respecting and celebrating diversity, enriching the lives of our pupils. Providing inspiration to participate in, and respond to, artistic and cultural experiences.

Collaboration: Working effectively and harmoniously together across phases, knowing our strengths will influence every step of our development, and celebrating our successes.

Community: Building a sense of belonging in a reflective and stimulating environment. Celebrating care, kindness and difference, allowing positive relationships to flourish and ensuring communication is excellent.

Character: Nurturing and developing personal attributes such as perseverance, resilience, confidence, optimism, tolerance, respect, community spirit, honesty, integrity and dignity.

Courage: Committing to challenge racial and social injustice and to promote personal and societal change. Making decisions based on clear high moral values and delivered with compassion and integrity.
