  • Outcomes, in terms of progress from starting points, for all pupils exceed national averages
  • The progress of the most disadvantaged pupils is in line with their peers
  • The progress of pupils with SEND is in line with their peers
  • The most able pupils are stretched and challenged to achieve their potential
  • Graduates of Trust academies are well equipped for their next stage of education or training
  • The quality of teaching in all academies is good or better
  • Assessment is robust, consistent and supports excellent progress in all academies
  • Safeguarding procedures including the PREVENT duty is outstanding in all academies
  • A toolbox of strategies ensures effective safety procedures and positive behaviour for learning in all academies
  • Expand our team of centrally employed professionals (Speech & language therapists, Education Psychologists, Art / Music therapists, emotional literacy therapists…) to work alongside health colleagues to ensure individual barriers to learning are addressed and all staff across the Trust are trained to meet needs.
  • Further develop existing collaborative working strategies such as: peer reviews, peer support, project developments etc
