The Pioneer Academy Trust was formed when Stewart Fleming School became an Academy in 2011. In May 2012, the Trust was asked by Bexley Local Authority to support Belvedere Junior School. The school was underachieving and subject to ‘special measures’ following an Ofsted inspection in January 2012. In September 2012, the Head of Stewart Fleming became the interim Executive Headteacher leading both Stewart Fleming and Belvedere. Progress was made very quickly at Belvedere and the Trustees were asked to make the school part of The Pioneer Academy Trust. The Trustees agreed and the process began, successfully launching the new Belvedere Academy on 1st April 2013. Belvedere Junior School came out of ‘Special Measures' in March 2013, just 24 weeks after the partnership began.
