Trust Objectives 2016 - 2019

The Multi Academy Trust has clear strategic aims built on our mission and values.  Our three year corporate business plan sets out the following objectives to ensure that, as a Trust, all stakeholder groups understand and have belief in our approach.  We will deliver:

Corporate Governance:

This will be done through the provision of a Board of Directors that acts in the best interests of the Trust and governs lawfully in accordance with its Articles of Association.  The Directors will demonstrate clear governance arrangements and visionary leadership to enhance and embed effective working relationships.  The Board will ensure there are effective support structures in place to deliver: a clear oversight of the academy operations, appropriate support structures for sustainability and achieve the best possible economies.

School Improvement - Teaching & Learning:

This will be delivered through ensuring that our academies provide the very best teaching in order to promote and provide high quality learning for the pupils.  The Trust will put effective support in place for teachers to achieve this aim.

Continued Professional Development:

We will implement a CPD programme for our academies to ensure that the staff have the right skills to further raise standards, deliver consistently good teaching and learning and disseminate good practice to ensure rapid improvement.

Quality Assurance:

We will ensure that there is a rigorous and robust programme of Quality Assurance that helps to support teachers, build expertise and capacity and raise standards in the academies to deliver positive outcomes for pupils.

Integrated Support and Shared Services:

We will ensure that the Trust has business arrangements that are efficient, effective and enables it to deliver on its commitments.  We will include strategies to grow, prosper and deliver value for money across all operations.  We will strive to ensure the consistent delivery of best practice, minimisation of risk and also for management of resources to be concentrated to the front line of the academies.
