Trust Strategy 2018-2025

3 ‘drivers’ to meet our vision

The Trust 7-Year Strategy is fixed on providing the best quality of education for the children within the Trust in order that every child achieves their God-given potential. The strategy includes 3 drivers to meet this vision which are growth, innovation and collaboration. 

We are targeting, by 2025, meeting the highest ‘leading’ criteria in Sir David Carter’s Matrix for Trust performance. Each year, our Trust priorities are set out to help us meet our stated aims and incrementally improve towards becoming a ‘leading’ Trust.
