STATEMENT OF INTENT
Newquay Junior Academy and Newquay Tretherras united formally and legally as a Multi-Academy Trust (Newquay Education Trust: NET) in September 2014. The Trust was joined by Brannel School on the 1st November 2017.
VISION AND CONTEXT
It is the vision of NET to create a holistic educational provision which is “greater than the sum of its parts.”
We want our young people to become happy, healthy, fulfilled and well educated human beings, capable of enriching and improving their communities. The creation of NET enables our academies to share resources and create efficiencies in an educational climate in which all schools are being encouraged to become part of Trusts and formal collaborative partnerships, in a self-improving, school-led system.
Whilst NT, NJA and Brannel will work together within one Academy Trust, NET is wholly committed to continuing the close partnerships and working relationships that it has established over many years with other schools, academies, Trusts and Teaching Schools.
NET EDUCATIONAL AIMS AND PURPOSES.
To build on the successes of our academies in order to create an innovative and exciting educational provision with a family centred ethos in which young people of different ages and generations learn from and support each other.
To create an outstanding and vibrant approach to teaching and learning across all year groups with each year building successively and progressively on the last.
To foster a culture of high aspiration and success for all, with equality and inclusion at its heart, so that no child is left behind or prevented from fulfilling their potential; particular attention will be paid to students who are most vulnerable, especially in our coastal community.
To ensure Attainment and Progress for every learner in order to raise standards from KS2 – Post 16, so that all students make increased and more rapid progress, thus reducing performance dips at key transition stages.
To enable students to make transitions to the next Key Stage according to their abilities, other than their age – a “Stage not Age” approach which will provide accelerated and personalised learning experiences.
To share (and target) expertise amongst staff, students and parents across a wider pool, and using the resources of The Kernow Teaching School Alliance (KTSA)*, so that NET becomes a powerful learning community dedicated to researching and learning from the very best and is in a position to respond quickly and effectively in a period of rapid and complex educational change.
To design a holistic, world class curriculum focused on raising aspiration and preparing our young people for the 21st Century, ensuring the particular needs of children and young people are central
To create a long lasting and significant partnership between the NET, its parents and the wider community.
To extend the “educational family” ethos of our academies in which senior students mix freely with younger pupils, acting as leaders, mentors, champions, role modelling success so that younger students become aspirational and confident about their futures.
To sustain a safe and nurturing environment in which young people are educated about healthy living and particular issues facing their community.
To offer staff access to the highest quality professional development and leadership training across key stages through the Kernow Teaching School Alliance (KTSA), and establish NET as a leader in educational employment, thus securing the highest calibre of teachers, leaders and support staff.
