What is it like to work at Djanogly Learning Trust?


The best way for us to know what it is like to work for the Trust is to seek staff opinion. This is very important to us and we  use a variety of methods

to gather feedback. For example, we undertake an annual staff survey. In 2020, 97% of our staff said they feel proud to work for the Trust and 93% would recommend to others to work for us.

Our values are at the heart of everything we do and we are very proud that 94% feel they are part of a strong team and 95% understand the benefits of working in a trust which shares best practice, networks and collaborates effectively with other academies in our group. Even better, 98% say that our actions are in line with our Trust values to put children first.

As part  of our Journey to Excellence and our commitment to active employee engagement we have an employee voice forum and a wellbeing committee. Both of these are attended by staff from across the Trust at all levels to feedback to the CEO and HR about areas for development.

We hold an annual Trust INSET event which all staff attend. This year we asked staff to use words to describe their overriding feelings about working in the Trust. We are so proud to share their thoughts below.


Employees who demonstrate a commitment to our core values of Excellence, Resilience and Innovation will:

  • Embody the belief that every child has the right to an excellent education and constantly strive to give every child the best opportunity to succeed and prosper through their contribution to the Trust
  • Recognise and demonstrate the importance of working hard, showing resilience and paying close attention to detail to ensure every child achieves their best.
  • Strive for excellence by demonstrating a commitment to innovation, engaging in CPD and constantly striving to improve provision and outcomes for pupils.
