Join our Trust

The Golden Thread Alliance is a growing family of schools created by the merger of two primary Trusts in Dartford and Gravesham. We celebrate difference and diversity in our communities, and are brought together by our shared commitment to our Trust values. 

Our governing belief is that we are as united as we are different. We work together, providing personalised support when needed, ensuring that every single one of our children can fulfil their potential for greatness and grow into compassionate and responsible adults. 

If your organisation aligns with our values, we would love to work with you.

Why the Golden Thread Alliance?

There are many benefits to being part of a supportive, collaborative Trust. Here are some of the things we believe make The Golden Thread Alliance truly special.

  • School Improvement: All Golden Thread schools work closely with our School Improvement Team and have access to a network of expertise and support across our Trust. We believe in celebrating the individuality and diversity of our academies whilst striving to be the best we can be.
  • Commitment to Inclusion: Rather than downplaying our differences, we recognise and celebrate them together so that we can learn how to respect each other and provide personalised support when needed. We are committed to developing educational outcomes that demonstrate no gap between different groups of pupils, including the pupil premium group.
  • The Golden Training Offer: We balance wellbeing with high performance by empowering staff at every level. Our Golden Training Pledge is our promise that all staff will have access to appropriate training and progression opportunities to help them achieve their goals.
  • Staff Benefits: We are committed to supporting each member of our staff to realise their full potential. Our generous staff benefits include two family days, wellbeing support, Christmas shopping leave, Specsavers eyecare vouchers, annual flu jab offer, subsidised school dinners, discounted breakfast and after school club childcare as per ECT leaflet.
