Vision and Values

A learning organisation in the truest sense

At the heart of our vision for education is a self-improving school-led system which has the best evidence-led practice and in which every child fulfils their potential. This is a learning community in which:

  • Our leaders are driven by moral purpose. They are outwards focused and not afraid to take risks to achieve system transformation. The focus of policy is on continually improving the quality of teaching.
  • Our teachers strive to be outstanding. They work across organisational boundaries to promote a collective sharing of knowledge, skills, expertise and experience in order to deepen pupil learning.
  • The individual talents and strengths of our pupils are recognised and nurtured. A passion and curiosity for learning is sustained in every child from the moment they join us. A CELT pupil leaves our family of academies with a purpose, and the confidence to fulfil that purpose.
  • Our parents are engaged in our learning community and actively work in partnership with us to raise the level of attainment and aspiration of every child.
Learning together to help every child achieve more
We believe there is no limit to what every child can achieve, and that every child deserves the chance to fulfil their potential.

As a learning community we are on an ambitious journey. We want to deliver a model for education in the 21st century which instils curiosity and a love for learning in every child so that they develop into young adults who contribute to humanity, follow their passions, and think for themselves.

By learning and improving together – as part of a global learning community – we create much richer and more sustainable opportunities for rigorous transformation than can be provided by any one of our academies alone.

We want our leaders, teachers, staff, parents and pupils to feel good about who they work for and why they are here. It is about having a shared purpose. It is about asking the question, “Why do we get up every morning and come to work?” and having everyone feel connected to the answer. 
Collaboration moves beyond the power of one to the power of team.

Empowerment flips the traditional hierarchy of an organisation on its head. It is about sharing information, rewards, and power so that everyone can take initiative and make decisions to solve problems and improve performance.

Leadership is about vision, having a clear idea of where we need to go, how to get there and what success looks like.

Transformation is about embracing creative disruption in order to deliver a vision for change that takes us to a new level of effectiveness.
 We don't just talk about our values, we lead by example and create a culture where every team member is inspired to live those values day-to-day.
Our values guide our conduct, activities and goals and are fundamental to the way in which we operate across our family of academies.
Our values underpin
all we do as a trust.
