Following Aristotle's philosophy, we believe that educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. Accordingly, we have encapsulated the Trust's ethos and values in the acronym HEART meaning we have:

H: High Expectations - of yourself, of others, including in terms of aspiration for the community and children we serve, conduct and standards in the widest sense

E: Enthusiasm - in attitude and to nurture it in others be they pupils/students/scholars, parents or colleagues; an

A: Academic subject-based curriculum - tried and tested subjects delivered in coherent sequence

R: Reading for all - achieving chronological reading age as well as love of this enabling and vital skill; and

T: Teamwork - recognising that together we can achieve more than we can alone.

Our HEART model gives stakeholders, staff, pupils and parents a common language.

Our schools include:

Folkestone Primary; Folkestone Academy; Morehall Primary; Martello Primary; and Turner Free School.

Turner Schools is committed to safeguarding children and promoting their welfare. It expects all staff and volunteers to share this same commitment.
