The Vision and Approach of the Primary Advantage Federation.
Every teacher is a great teacher; every school is a great school. We aim to move incrementally towards excellence in all aspects of our work.
All pupils will make good or better progress and will be properly equipped for the next stage of their schooling.
Learning environments are of high quality where pupils feel safe and secure, known and valued and motivated to learn.
Curriculum provision is bespoke, broadens horizons and inspires our pupils to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
Our learning community provides opportunities for growth for pupils, staff and families.
We believe passionately in improving the life chances for all our pupils.
We have the highest possible standards and will use our resources and expertise to unlock learning in all its facets for all our children. No barrier is too great; no learning is left behind.
Skilled teachers use the most effective teaching methods to motivate learners and raise aspirations.
Our schools are special places to work. We want to attract and retain staff at all levels that are willing to think flexibly, work with rigour and precision and go the extra mile.
We work in partnership, pooling our expertise and resources in order to achieve collectively what we may not be able to achieve individually.
We promote collaborative approach whilst developing the capacity of each school to serve its own community and retain its distinct identity.
We have developed approaches which we know make the most significant impact on pupil outcomes. These are well considered systems, approaches or policies which can be implemented in a range of settings with the appropriate levels of support.
Our leadership structure aims to make the most of our shared resources, maintain high expectations and secure high standards.
We build leadership sustainability by spotting talent and creating opportunities for staff at all levels to receive high quality training and leadership experiences.
We recognise the importance of individuality, spontaneity and creativity in developing innovation.
We seek to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of each school by capitalising on centralised services and sharing systems and procedures.
Through the work of our Learning, Development and Partnerships team (previously known as our Teaching Schools) we are able to offer excellent professional development for current practitioners, leaders and future recruits to the profession.
Teachers have many opportunities for professional growth through our development and masters programmes.
Staff, pupils and families have opportunities for growth through links with our partners, schools and a wide range of enrichment activities.
