What is LEPP?

Grange Farm is a Trust school.


A shared trust is where a group of community schools take on foundation status separately but set up one shared trust, working together to share best practice. The Trust doesn't run the schools, the headteacher and governing body do.

Working under the banner of a trust can clarify schools' vision, focus, aims, expectations and standards to make collaboration more sustainable.



We are part of the Leeds East Primary Partnership along with Beechwood Primary, Cross Gates Primary,White Laith Primary and Seacroft Grange (our associate member). Partners in our trust include Leeds City Council (children's services), Leeds Trinity University, The Brigshaw Co-operative Trust and Friends of Foxwood Farm.


As a trust we will:


  • Work together to improve the quality of teaching and learning and enrich learning experiences and raise standards of achievement in our schools.
  • Work together to strengthen the care, guidance and support for our children and families, particularly our most vunerable.
  • Work together to achieve the best for all of our children by developing our staff and school leadership.
  • Work together to achieve better value for our schools.
