Personal Courage and Optimism
It is recognised that schools face constant challenges. We aim to develop people in our schools who have the persistence and resilience to triumph over these. Our schools endeavour to create a culture of optimism. Leaders should be positive and encouraging and despite difficulties and pressures, our goal is to offer excellent education in order to change the world for the better.
Leaders in our trust recognise and value talent and we aim to identify individuals who display strengths and excellence. We will nurture and promote individuals in ways that will benefit both their career progression and the educational provision for the children in the trust. We also recognise that all individuals will have interests, skills and knowledge that are unique to them and we encourage them to use them to their full potential.
Our leaders act and make decisions impartially and fairly, using the best available evidence and without discrimination or bias. We exercise our judgement and analysis for the good of children and their families.
We recognise that each child is unique and we aim to give them all the very best possible educational experience whatever their starting point. We strive to accommodate the needs of each individual in our care and always aim to be sensitive to the wishes of children and their families. We celebrate diversity in our school communities.
We acknowledge we have a responsibility for the standards, financial management and educational provision of the children in our care. This includes safeguarding and personal safety of the children. We have a commitment to present information in a transparent and open manner. The Trust Board oversees the robust challenge and monitoring of budgets and finance in order to achieve positive outcomes.
Everyone in the trust community has the right to be treated in a humane, dignified and empathetic manner.
