At the end of another busy and successful term it's useful to pause and reflect on what's important. Infinity Academies Trust is continually refining and improving its offer to schools and what it means to be a member of our Trust family whether you're a pupil, parent, governor, trustee, staff member or friend.
As CEO when I think about my ultimate ambition for our Trust it's pretty simple... to put people first. I want our Trust and schools to focus on ensuring we help everyone be the very best version of themselves and we'll do whatever it takes to make sure that they succeed in whatever it is that's important to them.
Sure exam outcomes are very important as are Ofsted results but in 10,15 or 20 years time I want people to think back and be able to say how being at one of our schools whether as a pupil or staff member has enhanced their opportunities, supported their career and ultimately impacted positively on their life. I said it was a simple ambition... I didn't say it was easy!
To that end we frequently seek feedback from our pupils and their parents about how they feel about our schools. We are also just in the midst of conducting a well-being survey for our staff. I can't promise that we have got it right yet but I can say that we are constantly looking at how we can be better. We want Infinity to be place where every professional wants to work and every child wishes to attend and to do that we have to ensure we are investing in relationships and making people feel valued.
Schools are busy places and we ask so much of our teams and children but we want them to enjoy being part of our family and feel that they've got a support network across our schools focused on helping them succeed. So at the end of this busy term a huge "thank you" from me to all of our staff and children for a brilliant term. Your hard work does not go unnoticed, it is greatly appreciated and I'm so glad you're part of our Trust.
Have a great half term break.
