Academy trust launches glossy magazine to keep its schools in the loop

A multi-academy trust is celebrating the launch of its own glossy magazine, with senior staff at the helm and the trust’s chief executive acting as editor.

Connected, created by Salisbury Plain academies trust, will be available free to pupils and their families, staff and stakeholders.

The trust is made up of four schools across Wiltshire: Durrington All Saints infant school, Bulford St Leonard’s primary, Avon Valley college and St Michael’s primary.

Covering everything from the latest news from schools to staff profiles, the magazine aims to keep its schools connected and to maintain a sense of community.

Funded through sponsorship from local businesses and services, it will be published three times a year – with the next issue out in February 2017.

Helen Mathieson, the trust’s chief executive, said: “We are a busy group of schools, there’s so much going on and so much to say. Connected is an ideal publication for us to communicate our schools’ progress, plans and successes.

“The magazine has been created to carry our message across our area, informing parents, families and businesses as to what the future of local education is shaping up to be.”
