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.

 


Our Values and Ethos

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.

Belonging: we passionately believe that collaborative working brings mutual benefit. We involve teachers in fostering new thinking, we encourage innovation and share our expertise within our schools. For staff it presents greater opportunities and for pupils it adds new dimensions as best practice is shared and new thinking is introduced, so improving the learning experience.

Opportunity: We strive to create great opportunities for both staff and pupils. Staff have access to a broad range of training and development opportunities which impact on their career pathway. We are an ambitious, outward facing trust which has a pride in taking a lead role nationally and locally in developing educational thinking. Staff with specialist skills are deployed to challenge and support others within and beyond our family of schools.

Respect: Building positive relationships is at the heard to all we do. We expect all adults and pupils within the Trust to respect each other and act with integrity. A solid and sustainable future involves trust and honesty at all levels. We celebrate achievement and through honest conversations, reflect on aspects which can be improved. We are a diverse Trust, respecting individual differences at school and on personal levels.

Our core values, Excellence, Belonging, Opportunity and Respect, represent a powerful force for all that’s good in education during changing times.
