Welcome to The Russett Learning Trust’s Corporate Business plan designed to drive our current and future thinking and development into the year 2021. We have formulated our strategy to be both useful and purposeful so that we can use and refer to it regularly throughout the next three years. I believe that my role within this plan is to work together with our board of directors; ﬁrst, to create the vision and the strategic direction which will enable children and young people in our Trust to ﬂourish regardless of their background or starting point; and second, to drive through these plans for the beneﬁt of everyone within the Trust.
My commitment and expectation is that I, along with all other leaders, will constantly seek to motivate and empower staff to have a relentless focus on their own performance and that of our children and young people; and by forensically analysing data, ensuring that we have the best evidence-led practice and are being clear in our interventions. This may well require us to take tough decisions on our curriculum, structural costs and, therefore, our ﬁnances whilst we seek constantly to develop the collaborative culture across our Trust.
One of my most important roles is to build capacity in advance of need and ensure that we always can scale up without compromising the effectiveness of our existing academies/settings.
In uncertain times it is through our culture of excellence and the highest standards in all aspects of our work that The Russett Learning Trust will be best placed to respond to the needs of its stakeholders throughout 2018 – 2021 and beyond.
