Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan 2023 – 2026

In conjunction with our vision, mission and six aspirational aims, we use the DfE Trust Quality Descriptions and the CST Building Strong Trusts: Assurance Framework, as a tool for evaluating the effectiveness of our Trust and a template for strategic planning.

Within our Trust we strive to achieve the optimal balance between individual school styles, alignment standardisation and centralisation in order to realise our vision.  The way in which we operate may change from year to year as we develop and respond to the needs of our Trust. This plan identifies what we believe is the best way of working to achieve our aspirational aims at this point in time.  In some cases, we will be working towards this way of working.
