Vision and Values
The schools within our MAT are places where our children and young people learn and thrive. We have a clear vision:
"Creating Meaningful Futures"
This relates to each child and young person in every school and organisation. It equally relates to the staff team – it speaks of positivity and optimism – the characteristics we definitely value as a trust.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission statement (the way we go about conducting our work) remains valid: It encompasses an inclusive approach, the value of every individual and the purpose of our work:
"Learning Together, Learning for Life, Learning for All"
At New Bridge Multi-Academy Trust we are driven by a set of seven moral values, each chosen by the people that represent them. Our values reflect the qualities found in every member of our trust:
We are caring
We are creative
We are inspiring
We are passionate
We are innovative
We are collaborative
We trust each other
