School Values

Connect Multi Academy Trust - Vision and Values


The children in our schools are the future.  Every child has the right to an appropriate and engaging curriculum, delivered by motivated and skilled professionals.


We make a difference because it matters and we care.


We make decisions based on a detailed knowledge of what is happening for our children, in our classrooms, in our communities.


  • We carry out school improvement work driven by enquiry, research and innovation
  • We are outward looking and invite external moderation for our judgements
  • We share our expertise to develop a creative and engaging curriculum
  • We develop high quality learning environments within each unique school


We are honest with each other.


  • We treat each other with respect and take responsibility for our actions
  • We are open to both giving and receiving constructive challenge
  • We trust that difficult conversations are for the good of the children
  • We prioritise resources according to where need is greatest to benefit all children


We are absolutely focused on learning for all.


  • We hold a shared understanding of high quality learning and behaviours for learning
  • We are committed to growing, developing and building upon talent from within
  • We invest in our staff as we believe that children will thrive if our staff grow and develop
  • We value high quality collaborative continuing professional development to build on expertise from within and beyond

We are relentless in our drive to be the best that we can be.
