Trust Strategic Plan 2023-2028

Maiden Erlegh Trust is a growing education community, and the development of this plan has enabled us to reflect on where we are, where we want to be and what the future will look like in the context of our moral purpose. We are very proudly a values-led organisation, and the culture we develop across our organisation is held in high regard and underpins our success. We are committed to continuing in this way.

In reviewing and developing this strategy, we have taken on board the ideas and feedback from a number of stakeholders, and we will continue to do so in our periodic reviews.

This information is strategic, and its purpose is to:

  • Clarify the strategic priorities for Maiden Erlegh Trust for the next five years.
  • State clearly the criteria for evaluating success in each area.

Progress against this plan is reviewed through a Trust Self-Evaluation process by our Trust Committees and the Trust Board over the course of each year. The reviews are supported by a number of other monitoring processes eg: Risk Register, Budget Reviews, Stakeholder Surveys and monitoring within, and feedback from, individual schools.

This process informs, and is informed by, school improvement planning, department and team development planning and appraisal. They in turn, feed into the design of continuing professional development programmes, resource allocation, growth management and so on.

What is paramount in all these areas of our work is that the pupils and students remain at the heart of what we do and plan to do, and that our plans for every one of them are ambitious, inclusive and caring.

We are also clear that, in order to support every child, we must support and develop our staff and further our partnerships across the Trust and beyond.
