Vision and Values

We constantly focus on standards as we understand outcomes are paramount. Our decision making is driven entirely by what is best for children. By doing this we enhance the life chances of the children and young people in our care.

Outcomes Focused, Child Centred

The 10 values which underpin our vision:

1. We care passionately about the education and welfare of young people

2. We believe that all young people, irrespective of background or ability will be successful in our Trust (please refer to Equality & Diversity Policy)

3. We are not and will never be selective. We believe that local schools are for all chidlren

4. We are always inclusive. Our mechanisms to support the most vulnerable child to succeed and overcome barriers to learning are a key aspect of our work

5. Our approach to education recognises that outcomes are paramount and also allows children to gain experiences and values which prepare them fully for life in modern Britain. This includes workplace skills and appropriate advice for future progression

6. We have high expectations of behaviour

7. We adopt the local authority admissions protocol and work closely with them

8. We would always wish to act in such a way that has a positive effect on a neighbouring school or community. We care passionately about children in all schools, not just our own

9. That all employees act with integrity and embrace the value that 'we are the Trust'

10. We work regionally and nationally to develop approaches to MAT improvement that influence the wider school-led system

We have an ambition to move towards being a 'world class' organisation and by this we wish to:

1. Outperform ourselves every year, not only in terms of examination results but in every service we offer

2. Commit ourselves to continuously improving towards excellence

3. Delight students and parents who will be life-long advocates for our Trust

4. Work in collaboration with key stakeholders, all of whom will be advocates for our Trust

5. Be innovative and develop new ways to improve the lives of our students and colleagues

6. Have outstanding leaders within our Trust who create more leaders

7. Have everyone feel that they 'own' the organisation, whether it be a student or a colleague

8. Ensure that our operations are flawless, including our planning systems so that scarce resources can be managed effectively

9. Ensure communications and feedback are transparent, easily understood and support to help everyone reach their full potential
