All the headteachers in the MAT Contribute to trust-wide school improvement. By working together on key areas the collaboration will result in a dividend for the students and staff that is greater than anything achievable as a standalone school.
Each headteacher leads on one area of improvement and reports back to their peers in the headteachers’ forum. They use expertise and resources across the schools and seek to provide improvement, opportunities and outcomes in all the schools.
