THE Bishop of Middleton has given his blessing to Sola Fide CE Trust and its move to office premises in Uppermill.The Right Reverend Mark Davies visited the St Chad’s Parish Centre to perform an official opening ceremony with members of the Trust board.
CEO Peter Burnley welcomed the Bishop to the event, which was attended by educational partners, associates and friends of the Trust.
From a single stand-alone academy, the Trust has evolved into a multi-academy trust currently consisting of St. Chad’s C of E Primary, Uppermill; St. Anne’s C of E Primary, Lydgate; and St. John’s C of E Primary, Failsworth.
Sola Fide is not exclusive to church schools and welcomes the challenge of life-long education in an ever-changing world.
The trust ethos says love and service underpin all they do and these values are embraced by all personnel and firmly embedded in all their academies.
Their core purpose is to establish effective collaboration and embrace interdependency, acknowledging some things can only be resolved by groups working together.
Mr Burnley said: “As a Trust we ensure children are placed at the centre of all we do – they always come first. Children’s futures are entrusted into our hands.
“We are motivated by the desire to make a difference, strategic in our approach and committed to unleashing everyone’s potential.
“It is our ambition that all schools within Sola Fide Trust impact positively on the communities they serve.”
