I am delighted to be able to introduce myself as the Chief Executive Officer of Veritas Multi Academy Trust. Appointed to the role in September 2022, I am committed to ensuring that Pilgrims' Way continues to thrive and is enabled to deliver the highest quality of education for the children, making learning irresistible for all.
Veritas MAT works in a collaborative partnership with schools with an uncompromising focus on quality education, strong academic standards, high expectations and aspirations for all our pupils.
The MAT has three core values underpinning our work:
Innovative - Through strong collaboration across the Trust, our academies and staff uphold an innovative approach to staff development through embedding research informed practice. Through a positive and dynamic approach to research based pedagogy, staff across the Trust continuously reflect on their practice to create an environment where innovation leads to irresistible learning for all.
Inclusive - With a firm belief that as a Trust we are stronger together; we create an inclusive environment across our academies where staff and pupils feel emotionally and physically safe. Our academies are outward facing and create an environment where differences in gender, culture, disability and educational needs are embraced and celebrated; leading to irresistible learning for all.
Inspirational - Through inspirational leadership, teaching and learning; our academies create a climate where children, staff and parents strive to achieve and aspire for greatness. With strong collaborations we share practice and challenge one another using the principles of mentor-coaching to celebrate success and support improvement. High standards across a rich and diverse curriculum delivered in each academy leads to irresistible learning for all that is individual to each academy but reflects the shared ethos of the Trust.
