Severn Academies Educational Trust
Our vision is to create a family of outstanding schools with clear purpose, direction and ethos. Quality first teaching will be paramount, and pupils will enjoy and fully engage in a rich and relevant curriculum tailored to their individual needs ensuring empowerment of all students to achieve their full potential. The Severn Academies Educational Trust’s vision is to create and foster a culture of high aspiration and expectation amongst all students regardless of their social, economic or cultural background. The Severn Academies Educational Trust will lead and support the drive for excellence, with a strong and open culture of collaboration and engagement that fosters a love of learning and will secure outstanding progress for all.
We have a commitment to preserving local school identity and ethos with each school led by its Principal/Headteacher, Governors and other senior leaders, with its own curriculum and way of doing things. Our academies are driven by a desire to lead rather than follow, to be beacons of outstanding local provision, which local families believe in and can rely on for excellence. We share in a commitment, through a highly collaborative structure, to adopt strategies for school improvement to give all our young people an excellent education within a happy, caring and supportive environment.
Our Trust will exist to support and challenge schools, both within the Trust and acting in the role of S2S, to achieve and consolidate excellence where world-class achievement is the expectation.
The Directors of the Severn Academies Educational Trust will be responsible for the trust’s core strategic functions with the Educational Directors providing educational and strategic support to ensure all school improvement objectives are met. Headteachers acting as Educational Directors will ensure that all collaborative avenues are explored in order to advise the Directors on the future direction of the MAT’s educational provision. Both bodies will hold all schools to account for their performance in all key measures and outcomes.
