Value & Ethos Mission Statement
THE DEAN TRUST’S VALUES AND ETHOS
As part of our protocols, we have a number of over-arching aims and a mission that pervades all of our schools and academies as follows:
- We always put ‘pupils first’
- We follow Local Authority admissions criteria
- We believe that local children should attend local schools and we are not selective
- We are fully inclusive and welcome children from vulnerable groups e.g FSM, SEND, LAC etc
- We continuously provide high quality professional development for all of our staff
- We follow the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions and National Joint Council conditions of service
- We work positively with trade unions and actively involve them in our decision making
- We play our full role in behaviour partnerships/hard to place protocols
- We always put collaboration before competition
- To work in the areas of greatest challenge
- To move all academies in the Trust to at least ‘Good’ using The Dean Trust school improvement offer from the centre (Teaching School)
- To sustain improvements by developing character, values and beliefs alongside sound systems and processes
- To ensure that all academies in our Trust adopt The Dean Trust model for success, high aspirations, high standards and continuous improvement throughout the organisation
- To concentrate our operation within a 50-mile radius of the Central Hub to ensure that coverage of the academy group and lead times are manageable and focused
- The Trust would have at the centre The Dean Trust Teaching School and high quality School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT)
- To have high quality academy/school governance at the heart of the process
- To establish a strong centralised ‘back office’ support service for the academy group which is well resourced and funded to meet operational needs
Easter Holiday Shutdown
I hope you are all managing to stay safe and healthy.
We have been finalising our plans for the Easter break and can now confirm that Broadoak School will be closed from Friday 27th March until Tuesday 14th April. This is due to lack of pupil numbers.
However, for those parents with pre-existing attendance plans, Forest Gate will remain open and will be taking children from Partington Central Academy and Broadoak School (as already agreed). If you do require further support during this period you will need to contact the school directly via email so we can arrange the necessary cover.
A further message will be sent out over the Easter holidays to advise of plans from Tuesday 14th April.
