Our purpose is to ensure every LEARNER has choices about their future

  • Our first job is to support and extend learning for pupils to provide them with the skills and knowledge to make those choices.
  • Our second job is to make sure no child is ignored, no family is unsupported and no life is wasted, by providing intervention at the earliest opportunity.
  • Our responsibility to education is to provide an environment where practitioners can collaborate, learn from each other, take risks and reflect

Connected (sharing information openly, broadly and deliberately)

Helpful (embracing servant leadership and use initiative to solve the problem)

Organised (employing efficient strategies and trust colleagues to deliver)

Informed (asking coaching questions to understand what is happening)

Candid (disagreeing openly and compassionately)

Effective (only retaining our best elements and looking for continuous improvement)

Simple (avoiding complexity and increasing clarity)

What is our strategy?

Focuses on creating capacity (time and resources) for schools

Ensures support is agile, providing intervention at the earliest opportunity

Supports schools to employ and invest in the best educators for children
