Esteem Multi-Academy Trust currently comprises of eleven academies throughout Derbyshire, Derby City, and east Staffordshire. Formed by a group of like-minded school leaders in August 2018, the MAT is currently responsible for the education and care of approximately 1,200 students and employs around 750 staff. The total revenue budget for the MAT is approximately £23 million and plans are in place to expand further.

Esteem Multi-Academy Trust includes 7 special schools, 3 alternative provision academies and a mainstream infant and nursery school with an enhanced resource provision educating young people with autism and learning disabilities. We wish to grow further to fulfil our vision to become a centre of excellence for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in the midlands. We have a well-defined set of values and a clear vision for the MAT to become a regional hub for expertise in SEND and inclusion. We share a collaborative ethos, believing that we can achieve more for our pupils as a collective group of schools than we could separately. Our academies focus on the holistic needs of the young person, due to students’ vulnerabilities. So, ‘joined-up thinking’, between our academies and different agencies, is essential to deliver the right support for our students.

The main aims of Esteem MAT are to:

• Provide an ambitious, inspirational, bespoke education, setting the foundation for the future and ensuring our young people are ready for the world;
• Deliver high standards and value for money from our support services, resources, estate and technology; and
• Invest in and support our people, exploiting opportunities for collaborative, continual professional development, sharing of expertise and best practice.

As a group of academies working together, we can share and deliver better practice. We will be able to commission health, care and therapy services in a fully ‘joined-up’ way.
