“Members of the academy advisory board and the academy trust provide challenge for leaders to improve their systems further.”Ofsted, Windmill L.E.A.D. Academy, 2019
The creation of L.E.A.D. Academy Trust was a natural progression of our belief in a partnership ethos and our determination to ensure that more young people receive an exceptional education.
We passionately believe in the power of partnership working as a catalyst for better educational outcomes for children and systemic change.
This is why our model allows member schools the autonomy to lead and manage in a way that preserves their individual identity and responds to specific community needs, while unifying them through:
- shared vision and values;
- partnership working in key areas such as leadership, professional development and sharing best ideas and practice;
- improved succession and career planning;
- a relentless focus on an exceptional quality of teaching and learning.
A strong focus on leadership permeates our model. Everyone can benefit from the development of leadership skills.
Our focus on leadership also extends to succession planning, talent management and enhanced career options for leaders across our schools. Growing our own leaders and deploying them across the Trust as opportunities arise embeds our values, facilitates the sharing of best practice and promote sustainability.
