Whatever else children and young people experience, they can enjoy a good school. Schooling is part of growing up and complements the experience of home and community. The good school is aspirational in outlook, offering pupils a spirit of worth, contribution, achievement and belief and at the same time providing the opportunity to realise ambition in terms of life chances.
Education Central Multi Academy Trust (ECMAT) works for all pupils in our family of schools to secure an innovative approach to schooling which builds on observable strength and addresses long standing difficulties. The Trust strives for the best whilst remaining realistic, invests in communities, whilst taking the lead where necessary and expects the best, whilst dealing with the worst. The Trust is dynamic, active and imaginative in its work with schools while at the same time encouraging schools to take responsibility and develop their own autonomy within the context of a community of schools supporting each other.
The link with Wolverhampton University is significant. The faculties of the University offer expertise to our schools, including high calibre teaching staff. The University itself acts as an image of personal growth, learning and achievement for the community of which the pupils and their families are a part. Education Central believes that it is contributing to the long term health of the region and works closely with employers and business to meet the local economic needs.
ECMAT will work to ensure that parents are confident that committed staff at every level offer pupils the best of school experiences where their futures are secure. Pupils will leave the schools of the Trust with the skills to enter the next stage of their life, a desire to continue to learn and a belief that their schooling was the best it could be.
The ECMAT is committed to creating a culture where staff are valued and supported. The ECMAT supports a culture of openness and mutual respect in which staff will be encouraged to play as full a part as they can in the life and goals on the Multi Academy Trust.
