Our determination to make a difference is rooted in Moral Purpose. We want to improve outcomes and life chances for young people. Our Moral Purpose is manifested in our Principles, Beliefs, Aims and Commitments.
Wellspring Academy Trust is borne out of the following principles:
Our principles, beliefs, aims and commitments add up to a vision, which is to achieve a step-change in outcomes for young people.
Together we can make the difference.
We are very clear that great leadership requires autonomy. Wellspring Academy Trust was founded on the principle of autonomy. Our leaders and Academies have the freedom, indeed are positively encouraged, to innovate, to explore and to write the future for themselves. For our part, we will support and encourage Academies… not tell them what to do and how to do it.
The best leaders write their own agendas.
The best schools have the confidence to go their own way.
The best school systems work closely with their schools.
They encourage diversity of thought and risk-taking.
We will also challenge Academies if we believe that things could be even better.
We will intervene if we believe that there is a danger of things going wrong.
We will hold Academies to account where we believe it to be warranted.
