AtC has well established principles that underpin our work and decision making in all schools:
- Children come first; they are at the heart of all that we do
- Positive relationships underpin all our work
- High expectations, no barriers – everybody can achieve
Working together for the benefit of pupils provides advantages in access to ideas and expertise from a larger group of practitioners and leaders. Work between schools in AtC supports professional development and school improvement.
Support for schools in human resources, finance and premises form part of the core offer to schools in addition to coordinators of math, English and emotional health and well-being.
AtC recognises the individual character of schools that pupils, parents and their community value highly. As such, cultural autonomy remains with each school in order to meet the needs of their pupils and their community. The ability to determine the intent and implementation of the curriculum at school level is vital to the success of the school.
AtC is keen to develop partnerships with schools who want to work in collaboration to improve the quality of education for pupils. If you share our outlook we would welcome developing a partnership with you that could lead to joining the Trust.
