SSAT Primary Network membership

The SSAT Primary Network brings together primary schools from across the country in purposeful collaboration.

We work with individual schools and those in multi-academy trusts (MATs) supporting teachers and leaders in their mission to shape the future of education for young people.

Membership of the network offers a range of benefits designed to address your most important needs and priorities, and which reflect schools’ needs in the current educational landscape. We also work closely with key school leaders who help guide the direction of the network.

There are two membership options available: standard SSAT Primary Network membership and SSAT Primary Network Plus membership. SSAT Primary Network Plus membership is new for 2018 and offers members additional benefits in addition to the standard membership benefits.

What members of the SSAT Primary Network say

For me, the great thing about being an involved member of the SSAT Primary Network, is the opportunity to meet leaders and visit schools who truly inspire, through their bespoke approaches to pedagogy, innovation and excellence, at all levels of school leadership. Developing networks with these people promotes deep continuing professional development and formation, which has real impact within our school.

Sacred Heart R.C. Primary 

We became SSAT members following our success as an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award winner. It was important to be recognised nationally for our hard work in the school community. Being part of this growing network as a headteacher, I then felt connected and up to date with the latest policy and research. There is something different about being part of the SSAT primary ‘movement’ with innovation and impact at the core.

Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust

Robin Hood has a long and rich history of working with SSAT to improve outcomes for children. As a multi-academy trust, we aim to be as outward facing as possible and work with like-minded leaders and schools up and down the country. The strength of SSAT is in its ability to help link like-minded schools along with the wonderful online presence and resources that it has. Our aim within Robin Hood MAT is to become world-class and SSAT, with the support of Jo Corrigan who leads the primary arm, are helping us in this pursuit of excellence.
