II.2.4) Description of the procurement: We expect primary academies to join this contract with effect from the September 2023 intake of pupils. Five secondary academies would continue to be supplied under existing contracts until the September 2024 intake. A sixth secondary academy would join this contract if it was extended into a secondary period. We are looking for a supplier partner who offers high quality in terms of goods and customer service for parents/carers and our schools that are ‘fit for purpose’ and can also offer excellent value for money over the entire contract period.

Anglian Learning is a growing Multi Academy Trust operating in Cambridgeshire, West Suffolk and North Essex, formed in 2016. The Trust currently comprises 6 secondary schools and 9 primary schools. Another primary school is expected to open in September 2024 and will join this tender. Given the academisation agenda is likely that other schools will join the Trust over the life of the contract and we would seek to add them to this arrangement as their existing contracts with suppliers permit.

Our members share the firm belief that successful learning communities are underpinned by ambitious vision, trust and strong inspirational leadership at all levels of the organisation; that excellence is not simply defined by Ofsted grades and league table positions; and that education can play a transformational role in the lives of children and the success and wellbeing of our wider society.

Through membership of Anglian Learning, these goals are achieved by working with like-minded schools, leaders, teachers and all staff who are prepared to share responsibility, through support and challenge, to ensure that all our academies can offer an excellent education to all pupils, whatever their background and starting point.

The core vision of Anglian Learning is to enable dynamic, empowered learners who thrive ad lead in their communities: locally, nationally and globally. Our four core values and principles guide our work to achieve our vision:


We are ambitious for ourselves and all those in our community to be the best we can be


We underpin our relationships with a culture of support, respect and trust, recognising we are stronger together


We enable our academies, staff and learners to embrace new ideas and think creatively


We believe in equality of opportunity, celebrating everyone’s differences and supporting learners of all abilities from all backgrounds

Please note that the Trust is ideally looking to appoint one contractor across all schools. However, each school reserves the right to make its own appointment decision and reserves the right not to appoint any contractor bidding for this contract.
