As a Multi Academy Trust, we have clear strategic aims which are underpinned by our mission and core values. Our three-year Strategic Development Plan (2020-2023) sets out the following objectives:
Manage the effective return to full time education provision for all staff and pupils post-Covid.
The importance of personalising our approach to meeting individual need is greater than ever. The return to full time education provision requires increased flexibility and contingency planning in responding to the challenges arising from the pandemic in order to ensure that pupils are supported to fulfil their potential academically, socially and emotionally.
Secure meaningful and relevant opportunities for Trust growth, increasing and enhancing the continuum of SEMH support and provision.
Ethos Academy Trust is effectively prepared and ready for growth, with an appetite to secure greater collaboration and innovation, and to be better able to influence broader education policy and practice. Our academies will continue to be supported to develop areas of expertise that are recognised locally, regionally and nationally. Over time, this will further increase opportunities for the sharing of that expertise to further influence education policy and practice in a wider context.
Maintain a financially viable trust.
Our focus will be sustained on ensuring that the Trust has business arrangements that are efficient and effective to enable it to deliver on its commitments to grow, prosper and deliver value for money across all of our operations by delivering best practice, minimising and managing risk and concentrating the allocation of resources on the front line of our Academies.
Adopt and develop a strong People Strategy.
As the Trust grows and develops, the development of a strong People Strategy is essential from the perspective of attracting, developing and retaining staff who make an exceptional contribution to the Trust. Staff will be supported and empowered to flourish professionally and will be recognised for outstanding work and contribution. In turn, this will enable staff to provide a first-class education across all settings which will enable children to achieve their full potential.
