Spenborough Co-operative Trust
Spenborough Co-operative Trust was formed on 1st May 2012. It is a charitable trust which supports the work of eight schools in our community and Roberttown School is an associate member of the Trust.
The four key principles are:
- Raising standards
- Improving transition between key stages
- Developing community links
- Improving services for children and their families
The Trust logo was designed by pupils of the Trust.
As a school we want to provide the very best education for the children in our care. We believe that by working collaboratively with our Trust partners we will have a greater capacity to improve outcomes for the children in our school and those of others in our Trust.
Members of the Trust are:
- Heckmondwike Primary School
- Headlands CE (VC) J,I and N School
- The John Curwen Co-operative Academy
- Littletown J,I and N School
- Fairfield Special School

Sarah Breeze – Enrichment Activity Facilitator (EAF) – Spenborough Cooperative Trust
Ensuring children are happy and challenging themselves is something I’m truly passionate about. I am absolutely delighted to have secured my new role as ‘Enrichment Activity Facilitator’ a new position within Spenborough Cooperative Trust. I thrive on organising and developing new projects and keen to do something positive to help support the communities within our Trust schools. I have lived in the local area all my life so I am familiar with all the schools within the Trust and the communities around them.
I live in Mirfield with my husband and two boys aged 5 and 6. I have nurtured and supported them through their Early Years. Now they are both in full time school I felt it the right time to move onto the next exciting chapter in my life. I knew I wanted to develop my expertise in education, so last year I went back to college completing Level 3 ‘Specialist support for Teaching and Learning in schools’.
My background is Project Management within industry. I was 14 years project coordinating for a large local paint manufacturer. I have vast experience of working for, and with, multi million pound businesses and appreciation of the complexity and diversity this can bring.
I look forward to working with all schools over the next few months and please let me know if I can be of help with any projects or ideas.
