Development Priorities

As a Multi Academy Trust, our five year Strategic Development Plan sets out the following objectives:

  1. Become leaders in inclusive practice.
    Increase the quality and breadth of Ethos Academy Trust provision by further enhancing meaningful and personalised opportunities for all pupils to sustain positive engagement in lifelong learning.
  2. Change the wider public narrative regarding SEMH pupils and provision.
    Develop Ethos Academy Trust’s role as an expert and influencer on inclusion in relation to SEMH policy and practice at a local, regional and national level, contributing to wider sector improvement activity.
  3. Develop expert practitioners in inclusive, SEND practice.
    Ethos Academy Trust will invest in the development of a strong, healthy, engaged and motivated workforce of inclusive leaders, teachers and support staff who excel at securing outstanding outcomes for pupils with SEMH needs within and beyond the Trust.
