Our Vision and Values
Welcome to SHARE Multi-Academy Trust
We are a small, friendly partnership, currently consisting of four secondary and four primary schools in West Yorkshire. Our core belief is about valuing people and helping them to be as successful as they can be. This is both challenging and rewarding and we hope you find it inspiring.
In the years since the Trust was formed in 2011, schools everywhere have seen a considerable amount of change. We have met these challenges with a shared approach, working as a team, enjoying the support of shared moderation, making us stronger and more structured. Through supporting and challenging each other, the Trust has enriched each member school beyond our expectations.
We encourage the sharing of our expertise, whether it’s about recruiting and retaining good staff or improving the quality of learning; we all contribute and share our experience and best practice, helping to make our schools better places for our staff and pupils.
High performing schools enjoy the opportunity to contribute and share good practice, meeting with like-minded headteachers as partners and helping to improve the standard of education for young people.
Our own model for school improvement is an effective resource that we regularly tap into: good behaviour, good routines in lessons, tackling teacher expectations, stretching pupils and marking with constructive feedback are the key foundations we build on for long-term success. Schools that need more support soon begin to thrive.
We want to transform education for the better, raising aspirations in our diverse communities, increasing knowledge and developing the skills our children and young people need to make their lives rewarding and successful. Our schools will be the first choice for parents because we provide a safe, nurturing environment, excellent academic standards, a rich curriculum, first class support and a wealth of opportunities to learn and grow.
We believe education is all about people. Our success is measured in how we help our children and young people achieve. We can only achieve this success by employing talented, committed staff and working in partnership with parents. In doing so, we will benefit our communities. We have a distinctive way of interpreting this belief. We summarise it as:
“Valuing People, Supporting Personal Best”
This means we seek for every one of our students and members of staff, to enjoy coming to our schools and for all of us to try our very best in everything we do. We help everybody gain the knowledge, skills and habits that can lead to a happy and successful life, both now and in the future. We believe that helping people feel valued increased the chances of them achieving their personal best, which is the highest standard we can expect anybody to achieve.
Our guiding principles
Our guiding principles determine how we prioritise our activities, what we value and how we will conduct ourselves. In short, they describe what type of organisation we are.
Our overarching goal is:
To help more pupils, particularly the disadvantaged, achieve highly. Achievement includes academic success and developing the personal qualities to lead happy, healthy and successful lives.
We will achieve this by focusing on 5 goals:
