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:

Our Mission

  • 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

Aims

  • 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

From June 1st the Partington Hub at PCA will be moving.  The provision for pupils of key workers will continue at Broadoak School and the timings of the day will remain the same 8:45 – 3:00pm.  When pupils arrive they will be directed to a new temporary entrance.

This arrangement is only for those pupils currently attending at PCA and parents of children in Year 10 will receive further details about plans to return to school from June 15th imminently.
