REAch2 Touchstones

REAch2 is the Cornerstone of the entire Trust: providing a strong, responsible foundation from which every academy develops and grows. A cornerstone provides a subtle yet paramount role in a building and ensures that REAch2 is a trustworthy, reliable and inspirational organisation, delivering the best possible learning experience.

As a a school as part of REAch2 Academy Trust we are committed to creating a culture that strongly reflects our Touchstones: seven principles which make our academies unique. Just as 500 years ago touchstones were used to test the quality of the gold they marked, so too our Touchstones find what is precious and set these things apart. They are used to express the values and ethos of the Trust and describe perfectly what we are known for and how we operate.


We acknowledge and celebrate that all people are different and can play a role in the REAch2 family whatever their background or learning style.


Providing learning that is relevant, motivating and engaging releases a child’s curiosity and fun, so that a task can be tackled and their goals achieved.


Children and adults will flourish in their learning and through learning discover a future that is worth pursuing.


We act judiciously with sensitivity and care. We don’t make excuses, but mindfully answer for actions and continually seek to make improvements.


REAch2 aspires for high quality leadership by seeking out talent, developing potential and spotting the “possible” in people as well as the “actual”.


Inspiration breathes life into our schools. Introducing children to influential experiences of people and place, motivates them to live their lives to the full.


We recognise that we lead by example and if we want children to grow up to behave appropriately and with integrity then we must model this behaviour.
