CPD and professional collaboration are key features of our Trust in ensuring we build a community of schools which inspires excellence in everyone.
We have created a network of professional development opportunities to ensure all our staff are highly effective and that strong leadership pathways are in place. We have a strong induction process in place, high quality CPD for teachers new to the profession and leadership CPD for staff at every level.
Our Headteacher Group meets weekly through a remote platform and then for one day every half term. This is key to driving forward our development as a
Individual networks take place every half term to support improvement and development in key areas such as the Early Years and SEND.
Curriculum leaders in individual subjects have formed working networks so that they can collaboratively develop the Trust curriculum model, learning from each other, sharing the workload and avoiding duplication.
Our EWO and Trust Inclusion Officer work collaboratively across our schools to support with best practice when challenges arise.
Local Governing Boards have access to a range of training and development that supports them in their role as well as the half termly chairs network attended by all chairs.
At least once a year each Headteacher and a number of senior leaders are given the opportunity to take part in a two day due diligence of one of our schools. These due diligences are led either by an experienced Ofsted inspector or by our School Improvement Partner. Not only are these due diligences developmental for the school, they are also opportunities for school leaders to further develop good practice within their own settings.
