Working together to create great places to learn and work
Our Charter is a statement of our vision, principles and values, ensuring that the Trust remains true to the founding principles of our collaborative partnership as it grows over time. By working together with a common purpose of improving learning for all, we can ensure an excellent education for all the learners in our Trust. We believe that the best schools broaden horizons and open doors for children into the futures and opportunities of their dreams.
The Trust’s overriding purpose is to focus on securing the well-being and success of all pupils and students in its Trust schools by providing an excellent education with a focus on the development of the individual as well as on improving educational outcomes for every child, preparing them for a successful progression for the next step in their life, ultimately becoming active, engaged citizens.
The Acer Trust is based on trust with open, honest relationships between each of our partners supporting a developmental culture which complements individual school self-evaluation to enable rapid improvements in all the partner schools.
We work together to strengthen already high quality teaching and learning by creating opportunities to share practice; to improve progress and outcomes for all children in our schools; and to support other schools within and beyond the Trust in the spirit of partnership.
We actively seek to work with external organisations to share and further improve our practice and the opportunities we offer to our children.
We work with local and national networks or organisations in order to ensure that we are informed by best practice and are continually improving. Working with other professional partners encourages innovation; challenges our thinking; enables practitioners to develop by learning with and from the best; and ensures that we are providing the best possible education for every student.
The values of the Acer Trust underpin everything we do. We are a learning organisation and the values are for all learners in the Trust: pupils and students; staff; governors and trustees; parents and carers.
