Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation

Accord Multi-Academy Trust on board for 2021/22

Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is happy to confirm we have struck a partnership with Accord Multi-Academy Trust as part of our Onside Alternative Provision model. 

‘Onside’ is an early intervention programme set up by the Foundation’s Trinity Education department, where we try to help every young person thrive and flourish by identifying the cause of their problems and introducing the young person to useful coping mechanisms.

The provision will see a member of Trinity Education’s Onside staff visit Accord MAT’s California Drive site for two full days a week for the full 2021-22 academic year.

The provision will include a high number of one-on-ones, or small group sessions focused on sport and the club’s key values (such as respect, teamwork), which allow students to develop in various aspects of their school life.

The Accord Multi-Academy Trust is an educational charity, currently made up of four separate schools, including both Ossett and Horbury Academy.

day trips or enrichment activities will be included throughout the academic year, where students will get the opportunity to take part in our all-new STREAM Education days, Rock climbing experiences, whilst having the opportunity to meet some of the Wakefield Trinity first-team players, as an incentive for completing the program.  

Whilst commenting on the new partnership, Vice Principal of Accord MAT, Miss Sam Gibbs, expressed her delight to have the Foundation on board for the upcoming year.

“We are delighted to be able to work in partnership with Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation to shape the curriculum and provision for the students of Accord Multi-Academy Trust,” Miss Gibbs said.

“This exciting opportunity will provide pupils a unique offer which will increase their core skills and broaden the possibilities of what they can achieve.”

While Head of Education & Training at the Foundation, Luke Shale, followed, “We are really excited with the new partnership with Accord MAT.

Our Onside Alternative Provision is a department we have put a lot of time, effort, and research into as we endeavour to hit the highest of standards.

“We can’t wait to work alongside Miss Gibbs, Mr Hanby and the team at California Drive.”
