Vision

Vision

Ebor Academy Trust is mainly a primary school-led, mixed multi-academy trust comprising both Community and Church Schools. As an inclusive Trust we embrace the diversity within the communities we serve. We consist of small village schools, large urban schools, schools in challenging circumstances and those which have the capacity to support others. We celebrate the uniqueness of each individual setting and share skills and resources, where appropriate, across our group.

Ebor Academy Trust is a family of schools with a sense of responsibility for each other, building caring, strong professional relationships.

We provide a quality education provision for two-year-olds through to 16-year-olds. Our vision, continually evolving with regular input from school leaders within our group, is to provide great outcomes for pupils, staff and the wider leadership team, including governance. The Trust is ambitious for all its component parts, creating an environment where there is a desire to learn. Our pupils develop the ability to communicate effectively, collaborate with others and think critically and creatively.

Ebor’s locality based hubs of schools are led by executive headteachers with a proven track record of excellence in education. Executive headteachers have a responsibility to ensure an appropriate balance between quality assurance – holding schools to account – and school improvement support, to make sure Ebor schools achieve the very best educational provision.

We operate from four geographical hubs: Ebor Central (around York), Ebor South (around Selby), Ebor Yorkshire Coast and Ebor East Riding and The Humber.

The Ebor Family of schools has four core values which drive everything we do: Excellence, Belonging, Opportunity and Respect.

Excellence: Staff and pupils should work hard and strive to be the best they can be, academically and socially. They should achieve great outcomes in a broad range of subjects which equip them for the future. We believe that every child should make great progress, regardless of prior attainment or social circumstance.

 


Understanding Ebor Academy Trust

With its headquarters in York, Ebor Academy Trust is a teacher-led multi-academy trust – a family of schools with a sense of responsibility for each other.

Ours is a mixed trust comprising both Community and Church schools. We have strong links with York St John University, work closely with the Diocese of York and have established many successful and innovative partnerships with organisations sharing common values and the same moral purpose.

We consist of small village schools, large urban schools, schools in challenging circumstances and those which have the capacity to support others.

Our schools operate in geographic hubs in York, Selby, on the Yorkshire Coast and in the East Riding and The Humber.

Ebor stands for Excellence, Belonging, Opportunity, Respect:

  • Excellence in all we do
  • A sense of belonging and solidarity for everyone in our group
  • Opportunities that are presented when we work well together
  • Respect for what we do and for each other.

We celebrate the uniqueness of each individual setting and share skills and resources, where appropriate, across our group.

Ebor was established to help a school in York that had been failing for over a decade. Less than three years after it joined the trust, Ofsted awarded the school its first ‘Good’ rating.

We provide a quality education provision for two-year-olds through to 16-year-olds. Our vision, continually evolving with regular input from school leaders within our group, is to provide great outcomes for pupils, staff and the wider leadership team, including governance.
