We are developing high quality local leadership that ensures the fit to local conditions and needs, within carefully constructed structures and approaches. At the same time we are committed to the development of high quality learning regionally and this outward face will help drive improvement at TSAT. We value our staff and are enabling them to become exceptional professionals through learning and development. Our new teaching school, Fields of Learning will provide impactful learning to develop both leadership capacity and innovative approaches to teaching and learning. It will also provide excellent opportunities for new entrants to the profession, development and deployment of strategic leaders in local and national education whilst also ensuring a hub for effective school to school support.
A key focus of the coming year is to provide a cost effective organisation and a business model that delivers efficiency, effectiveness and economies of scale in order to free up more resources for our learners in the challenging years ahead. A professionally led Executive team with a high level of business skills frees our Local Governors to focus on the outcomes of the Academy in their communities, whilst ensuring that we achieve best value for money and a sustainable, independent Trust that is financially viable and able to invest in innovation and growth.
We will also aim to develop the ability of our schools to provide high quality learning opportunities for our students and children. We believe this can be achieved through sharing good practise between our already successful academies and looking for the best professional development opportunities for all our staff. We will aim to ensure that the level of scrutiny remains high with external professionals used to offer challenge and scrutiny.
The Multi Academy Trust is also keen to look to develop the size of the Multi Academy Trust by looking for existing schools who would like to join the benefits of Unity. The MAT is also in discussion with Warwickshire County Council, the Regional Schools Commissioner and the New Schools Network to identify opportunities for the development of Free Schools.
A more detailed business plan is being developed for the next 5 years including plans for growth.
