Saffron Academy Trust (SAT) is growing after welcoming another school to its partnership.

RA Butler Infant and Junior Schools signed up to the Trust earlier this month, and now joins Saffron Walden County High School, Katherine Semar Infant and Junior Schools and Alec Hunter Academy in Braintree.

As a result of the signing, RA Butler’s executive headteacher, Emma Vincent, will take on a new role as one of the two deputy CEOs in the Trust, working alongside Julie Puxley who is headteacher at Katherine Semar.

Caroline Derbyshire, CEO of SAT, said: “We are thrilled to be joined by RA Butler Infants and Junior Schools, because it will cement the already close working relationship between us. Emma Vincent and her staff and governors will be an asset to SAT as we continue in our mission to create a family of local state schools who provide an excellent standard of education to children in our community.”
