The BDAT Faculty of Professional and Career Development brings together into a single entity all that we currently do to recruit, develop and retain our staff. The Faculty provides the strategic direction to ensure that our professional and career development supports school improvement and drives our vision of BDAT as an employer of choice. By bringing all our work in this area under ‘one umbrella’ it ensures our staff know about BDAT’s development offers and how they can be accessed. https://bdat-people.org/
Over the last 2 years, not including normal Nursery/Reception admissions, we have welcomed 125 new children into school (around 25% of NOR) and 68 children have moved on to other schools or moved to another country.
Significant numbers of our new children are asylum seekers and refugees and experienced severe trauma on their journey to our country, community and school. We know a number of our children have 3 or more ACEs through our Safeguarding and Inclusion work and recognise that there will be many more where we have not had notification or provide intervention.
We serve an area of extremely high socio-economic deprivation, where experience of, and aspiration to, education success has been historically and significantly low – IMD & LSOA data confirms the children live in an area that is identified as being in the most deprived 5% of the country and has become more deprived since 2015. Our constituency, Bradford East, has the highest rate of unemployment in Bradford, the lowest life expectancy and highest infant mortality rates. Crime figures show that we are in the 2% most affected areas in the country.
All of these challenges have resulted in our proactive work to ensure that our curriculum and approaches meet the needs of all children, including the large proportion who are new to the country, community and school. You will be pivotal to our work.
