In the Trust we will work together with others to ensure that outstanding education remains at the core of everything we do. We stand for traditional values, top quality teaching, high standards of pupil behaviour, and state-of-the-art learning environments.

Underpinning the Trust’s expansion plans are the principles of raising standards, and achieving high quality pupil outcomes within a framework which will achieve rapid improvement. All staff are held accountable for the implementation of these principles.

Key Objectives

· To continue to build institutional strength, capacity and sustainability.

· The Trust aims to extend the number of pupils who are able to benefit from and flourish within the Platanos community of schools with its particular ethos and expertise by expanding the chain to include six more schools in the next three years.

Performance Objectives

· To ensure an organisational culture with shared values of consistent service delivery of high standards and accountability.

· To concentrate workforce development planning within a culture of training, professional development, networking and school-to-school support.

· High standards of quality assurance, putting teaching, learning and pupil outcomes at the top of the agenda.

· High quality resources to support best practice in teaching and learning, with a particular focus on promoting excellence in literacy, numeracy and IT.


The Platanos Trust community of schools will exist and work for all pupils and learners. We have an unshakeable belief that we can make a difference. We are committed to changing lives with high expectations of all in our community.

· We prepare pupils and learners to take advantage of learning opportunities throughout their lives and to rise to the demands of academic rigour, high standards of scholarship, further and higher education, as well as in their future careers.

· We believe that every learner can succeed and we challenge and support them to reach their full potential. We offer all learners a rounded education to meet the challenges of an ever changing society.

· We raise the aspiration of learners to ensure that they achieve beyond their expectations and play a valuable role in the world.

· We celebrate success and encourage pupils and learners to take part in and enjoy learning and life by stretching the abilities of all. All areas of our community of schools will work together with shared and consistent values.

· We are proud of the cultural diversity in our schools and encourage tolerance and respect for each individual. We link our schools to other cultures and communities throughout the world.
