ekoEko Trust

Eko Trust is a family of good and outstanding schools who collaborate to learn and deliver the best educational outcomes for our children. https://www.ekotrust.org.uk/

Eko is a growing Trust and is currently made up of six schools: four primary and two all-through Social, Emotional and Mental Health Special schools. Our schools are based in Newham, Barking and Dagenham and Hackney.

We welcome contact from other schools who wish to collaborate with us or want to join our family of good and outstanding schools.  

Vitality, optimism, integrity, courage and equity

These are our values that drive everything we do.

We are passionate about nurturing, growing and developing people, so that the children and families we serve have the best opportunities to thrive. We work together with parents – we know that no one knows their children like parents do. We want to excite and motivate those who work with us and create real joy around learning.

There is an absolute commitment to working together and utilising the collective brain that we have within the Eko Trust. All our schools, as well as organisations outside of Eko, work together to accomplish things that would not be possible alone, while maintaining the distinctive character of each school.

A key driver is our focus on improvement. We want to continually develop our staff and the learning of the children and young people, to make us better and better.


Our Vision – What We Will Achieve

Every member of our community is empowered to learn, to be ambitious and to be resilient.


Vitality, Optimism, Integrity, Courage, Equity

The governing bodies wanted to ensure that all Eko Trust schools continued to serve the communities.  Pathways and Eko Pathways School in the London Borough of Newham have joined the Local Governing Bodies together to make sure we work together as specialist schools to provide the best of practice and that staff and children had great opportunities.  Eko Trust has the ambition to grow, to work with schools that want to learn and have skills and expertise to offer as well as those that want to learn and have challenges to solve.
