Robert Pays Tribute to Local Schools Trust at PMQs

Robert said: "The Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST) is an academy trust which operates across West Oxfordshire and the Prime Minister's constituency of Maidenhead.

"I was therefore delighted that the Prime Minister joined me in welcoming ODST's many success stories, like Outstanding-rated Brize Norton Primary School in West Oxfordshire and Holyport Primary School in Maidenhead.

"In a largely rural area like ours, ODST recognises the amazing work that small, rural schools do for local communities. Providing an excellent standard of education for all pupils as well as a focus on a happy, healthy workplace for staff, ODST is an example of how academisation can work for pupils, communities and teachers alike."
