Mission

To support and enable all of our learners to believe in themselves, to succeed in life and to aspire to be all that they can be.

Vision

•  To have excellence as standard in every phase of our children’s education

•  To be a place where everyone grows; both children and adults

•  To be the education community of choice

•  Supporting all within the Trust and beyond

•  Sourcing support within the Trust and beyond

•  Lead through best practice and innovation

•  To provide support and share best practice and innovation through collaboration within and outside of the Trust

•  Have opportunities beyond the academy boundaries to allow learners to develop a global view and experience diversity, challenge, competition and difference

•  To offer a place for all to achieve regardless of faith, culture, ability or background

•  Be a centre for the creation of lifelong learning

Values

•  We believe that the Trust is stronger together and that collaboration will always be more effective than competition

•  We will never fail to believe we can succeed

•  We seek to inspire all our learners to question, research, care, engage and thrive

•  Honesty and integrity will be rooted in all we do together

•  Inclusivity is at the heart of the community – no groups or individuals will be left behind and we will commit to being a support for all

•  We recognise that excellence in teaching and learning is only possible when the best teachers are employed and supported

•  There is an agreed commitment in all aspects of the academies, communities and the Trust to “Excellence for all”
