Uttoxeter Learning Trust – Mission, Vision and Values – January 2023 ‘Inspired Teaching, Inspiring Children’
Our purpose is to provide an inspiring education for our young people that supports them to reach their full potential and become well rounded, successful citizens.
Our vision is to grow our family of schools, and our pupil and staff community, within Uttoxeter and beyond, to provide an outstanding education and become one of the leading multi-academy trusts in the country.
About Uttoxeter Learning Trust
Through our common purpose and values, we offer an inspiring curriculum that allows our young people to develop both personally and academically.
We do this by inspiring pupils through inspired teaching. We empower young people to realise their potential and surpass their own expectations from Early Years to Post 16, imparting the knowledge, skills and behaviours to ensure they are fit for the future.
Our all-through schools network enables the ideal transition between phases of education, supporting high levels of progress and inclusivity. At the same time, all our schools have an independence that allows them to best serve their communities, supported by delegation of a range of powers to our local governing boards.
As a growing Trust we are supporting our schools to excel through a strong central team, in addition to Governors, Trustees and Members who offer a variety of experience and expertise.
By working with employers and higher education providers we enrich learning opportunities and secure competitive destinations for pupils when they leave our care.
We focus on on-going evaluation and improvement, collaborating between schools and drawing on expertise both within and external to the Trust to ensure the best education, professional development, and value for money.
