ISP Values

The values that underpin our MAT

As a MAT comprising of a primary, secondary and studio school we embrace the opportunities presented to collaborate together and to eradicate disadvantage providing new experiences, progression and new career paths for all or young people and members of staff.

Teaching and learning is at the heart of all that we do together and individually.  We recognise that we are all teachers and learners, regardless of age, stage, context or experience, hence every member of our MAT is valued for their contributions, their needs and their investment in our MAT becoming 'better together'.

The Vision for our MAT

The vision for our MAT is to become a family of schools with outstanding teaching and learning at the heart of everything we do.  We want to continue to be the first choice for children, families and current and future members of staff.  We want everyone in our educational community from the youngest pupil to the most experienced leader to thrive.  We will develop and embed a love of learning, and a self confidence in self, a kindness for others, an energy for life.  Together, we want to create a community of teachers and learners that make outstanding progress from every starting point.  To enable this we are as dedicated to our staff development and progression as we to every young person.

Future Intentions

We are most welcoming to partners who share our values, vision and commitment to students and the personal and professional growth of staff.  We are committed to providing the best possible learning environment for all our schools, balancing the autonomy of leaders of schools with the autonomy of the trust.  We are keen to remain outward looking and build relationships with other MATs and key stakeholders such as the Local Authority, Regional Schools Commissioner, Studio Schools Trust, Baker Dearing Trust and Ofsted.
