Executive Leadership support
All existing Heads in the Trust have the option of sitting on the Executive Leadership Team (ELT). The ELT is a cohesive team, driven by the shared goal of being aspirational, cohesive and effective; the vision of the ELT, like the Trust itself, is to enable all to flourish.
The ELT drives Trust-wide change and prioritises the agenda for growth and development. There is a strong ethos of peer support, and school leaders value the opportunity to shape the direction of their Trust.
The Central Team is committed to not only supporting schools, Headteachers and Local Academy Board Members, but also in developing new strategies and processes to minimise barriers to progress for all concerned.
The Central Team consists of School Improvement personnel, alongside a team of Academy Improvement Partners (on a consultancy basis). Allied to this, the Trust has dedicated Finance, Estates, Human Resources, Governance, Admissions and Administrative officers, whose mission is to be both proactive and responsive.
