We have a structured approach to school improvement which provides a clear and robust system whilst still allowing for individualisation for each school team. Our overriding aim is to provide excellent education for all children and to ensure that they all make good progress and no child is left behind.
All improvement strategies and action plans start with a clear understanding of successful outcomes:
Children achieving better than, or at least in line with, national comparators
Good and accelerated progress in all year groups
All teaching, learning and assessment good or better
Strong leadership and management practice which is sustainable, leading to greater independence and autonomy at school level
Strong governance structures which hold leadership to account; locally as well centrally
Trust leaders will use data to hold academy leaders to account, to identify priorities and to measure impact of actions on outcomes. Approaches to data collection and analysis are straightforward with a common information tracking system across the Trust. There is a transparent and shared quality assurance process which involves academy leaders across the Trust providing robust support and challenge to each other under the guidance and leadership of the Executive Headteacher. Key performance indicators and information are then fed back to directors and governors in a consistent way so that comparisons can be made, weaknesses highlighted and strong practice shared.
