Bridge Academy Trust encourages diversity and flexibility within its schools, and each institution has its own identity, ethos and values that fit into the agreed Bridge Academy Trust core purpose and values. This is reflected in each school implementing its curriculum.

Our approach to supporting the schools and school leaders with school improvement is through access to high quality resources and information and through the development of staff to improve the quality of classroom practice in every classroom in every school within the Trust. A key priority is having a great teacher in every classroom and we are committed to this approach. Every child deserves this and no less. We have put in place a range of coaching, networking and professional development support for staff at all stages of their careers –from newly qualified staff to Headteachers.


Alongside coaching for senior and middle leaders, we have flexible central staff who can provide direct support when required. Our network groups, which have staff from every school, meet termly, and currently we have groups for English/Literacy; Mathematics/Numeracy; SEND; Science. These are opportunities for staff to hear first-hand the best practice, have time to discuss how to implement new ideas and then share back at their own schools with their own staff so that our children receive the best and most up-to-date delivery. We also ensure that schools come together to review whole school practice, and to moderate/quality assure their work so we know, with confidence, that the children are making good progress.
