Our Vision
Our Vision

    • Our children deserve to be in the best schools in the country and we will relentlessly drive towards improvement and excellence to achieve this ambition.  We will seek to recognise and maximise people’s strengths and energy in order to engage everyone in the mission to raise aspirations, improve learning and achieve success.  We will build a positive, resilient and empowering culture striving always to do better and aiming for ‘excellence’.  Our pupils will have strong literacy and numeracy skills and  talk confidently and knowledgeably about being the best they can be.  We will build the skills, knowledge, behaviours and attitudes that enable every individual to be happy, successful and fulfilled.  Our curriculum will be irresistible, relevant and life-enhancing for learners and learning pitched so that all pupils are supported and challenged to achieve success

     
 

                                Our Statement of Intent:

  • To promote excellence with staff, pupils and parents through high expectations and aspirations for success
  • To equip every pupil with the skills, particularly literacy and numeracy skills, attributes and basic knowledge to succeed in life
  • To fully understand the learning needs and barriers of each of our pupils and to carefully monitor and guide their progress in collaboration with parents
  • To make learning irresistible, relevant and life-enhancing
  • To retain, train and recruit the best staff at all levels, including governors
  • To research, develop and implement the best practice and strategies for improvement in all aspects of our operation
  • To develop strong partnerships for the benefit of all, particularly with parents
 

                                    We are aiming for...

  • every learner to make great progress to achieve well
  • disadvantaged pupils to do at least as well as all children do nationally
  • teaching and learning that stimulates, inspires and challenges
  • pupils with positive attitudes to life-long learning and the skills, knowledge and attitudes they need to be successful in life
 

                                    Our Students will say...

  • I am well prepared for the next stage of my education, with good literacy and numeracy skills and a positive attitude to life-long learning
  • I am responsible, resilient, respectful, open-minded and tolerant
  • I have confidence and I am able to take risks
  • I am a good team player because I listen to others and share my ideas
  • I have good thinking, reflecting, enquiry and learning skills
  • I can manage my time, self-motivate, take decisions and lead
  • I want to achieve well and I try my best all the time
  • I am keen to have a role to play in my community and a contribution to make in the future
 


Our Strategic Priority: 

Securing high performance across all schools so that all pupils by the age of 11 have at least achieved nationally expected levels, with a particular focus on the attainment and progress of disadvantaged pupils

We are aiming for disadvantaged pupils, as a group across the Trust, to achieve nationally expected levels for all pupils by 2016/17 

(in 2014 this was 79%)
