People Strategy

Recruit & Retain

  • Our talent management is aligned to our strategic business objectives to ensure that we identify, attract, engage, develop, deploy and retain the employees most suited to our business
  • We increase our application and acceptance rates by developing an attractive and welcoming recruitment portal which positively reflects the values of our Trust and our academies
  • Our new starters are supported with effective induction and robust probation, designed to challenge, encourage, support and praise
  • We recruit, develop and retain individuals who are committed to transforming the lives of our children and families
  • Retention of staff is be addressed through excellent staff development, well-being initiatives, opportunities for initiatives which allow staff an opportunity to explore other roles without leaving the organisation, e.g., sabbaticals, secondments, or job swaps with colleagues in our other academies to enhance understanding of different key stages, or differing levels of need.
