Welcome from the Every Child Matters Academy Trust
At the ECMAT our vision is to build a collaboration of schools where openness, honesty, fairness and empathy, together with the development of best practice, ensure all children within our schools receive a first class education. Through system leadership we will support the practice of other schools and academies beyond our Trust to enable them to achieve the same outcomes.
Children are at the heart of all we do. We will provide EVERY CHILD with early help and support to remove barriers to learning and an education that raises aspiration resulting in excellence and enjoyment. This will enable all children to fulfil their potential and maximise their life chances.
As a Multi Academy Trust our core principles are to:
strive for excellence in all that we do;
have a clear focus on school improvement;
work with families to improve life chances;
make a commitment to life-long learning; and
ensure each school maintains its own identity whilst collaborating as one organisation.
I have been CEO of the ECMAT since it formed in October 2015 with founder members being High View Primary Learning Centre, Hoyland Springwood Primary School and Wombwell Park Street Primary School. The Trust is supported by the Tykes Teaching School Alliance of which Highview Primary Learning Centre is a designated Teaching School. It is a privilege to be part of the devoted team of teachers, support staff, governors and trustees who all have an unwavering desire to achieve the very best for our children and families.
Each school serves its own community and has its own unique identity which is led by a Local Governing Body and we now work together as one organisation, led by a Board of Trustees. We have a clear focus on school improvement and specialise within the primary sector. The Trust currently consists of both converter and sponsored academies.
I would welcome other schools who can share our ethos and vision to join our Trust.
