Reach Learning Community

Bitterne Manor Primary School became a foundation school as part of a co-operative Education Trust called 'REACH' on the 1st September 2019. Our aims are:


  • Develop outstanding learning and develop an outstanding quality of education for all our pupils and staff.
  • Increase the level of aspiration and opportunities for our community.
  • Realise the potential of all our young people in our community in academic, vocational and social learning.
  • Ensure excellent longer term employment prospects for our learners through a robust focus on future opportunities.
  • Provide an innovative curriculum across all phases with enrichment opportunities to develop the pupil’s knowledge and understanding of the world, raise self-esteem and promote  well-being so each young person is both prepared academically and socially and have the vocational skills to succeed in the next phase of education or in the workplace.
  • Improve transition for our learners across each Key Stage.
  • Develop our education partnership to include our parents and the wider community,
  • Develop partnerships with preschools, nurseries, colleges, universities, employers and  apprenticeship providers.
  • As a Co-operative Education trust, we adopt and support the values and principles of the co-operative movement in our work.


Trust schools are part of the local authority system, but supported by a charitable trust which appoints some of the governors. It is important to be aware that our governing body continues to run the school, handles the school budget and is responsible for the performance of the school.
