“You don’t get harmony if everyone sings the same note”
Schools that want to join us will have an overarching drive to provide an outstanding education for their pupils. We recognise that one size does not fit all and that each school is free to pursue its own initiatives. We will support each school to be the best it can be and in its own way.
Rochford Primary School has become the first accredited Forest School in Essex, building on its excellent SAT results.
Holt Farm Junior School became part of our MAT while in Special Measures; in 2018 the school achieved a Good Ofsted rating and is now looking to continue its progression to Outstanding.
Prince Avenue Academy and Nursery has won a bid to the School Nursery Capital Fund and is looking to provide wrap around and holiday cover in one of the most deprived neighbourhoods in the UK as part of its strong involvement with the local community. Its Ofsted is overall Good with an Outstanding judgement for personal development, behaviour and welfare.
Westcliff High School for Girls has expanded by 1 form of intake and is now looking to expand again with ambitious targets for increasing pupil premium admissions. In 2018 the school achieved its best ever GCSE results, amongst the best in the country.
Our Headteachers’ Steering Group (HSG) meets monthly and ensures a commonality of standards across the group, sharing of resources and support and encouragement between all the schools. SEEAT do not charge a top slice. We have an open list of central costs which are re-charged directly to schools on a per pupil basis. The HSG makes recommendations on the central costs to the Trust Board.
If you are looking to be constructively challenged and supported to achieve more, then we are the MAT for you. If you are more motivated by service for your pupils and community, then we are the MAT for you. If you believe that good means there is still room for improvement, then we are the MAT for you.
If you want your school to be great, we will help you achieve this. If your school is great already, join us and help others by sharing your knowledge.
