Our Excellence Pathway

Humber Education Trust’s vision is to develop a high performing Multi Academy Trust that delivers the very best educational experience for all children and young people.

The Trustees, CEO and Headteachers place developing Learning, Teaching and Assessment at the core of our overall strategic intent. We recognise and cherish the depth of expertise at all levels across our schools. Our ambition is to identify, develop and utilise the vast array of talent and experience within our workforce in order to support and improve all schools across the Trust.

We believe in innovative staff development opportunities at all levels. S2S Support Leaders and Peers will have a unique opportunity to have an impact on children’s lives beyond the classrooms of their own school.

By working together we will promote innovation and strengthen the ethos of the Trust to ensure that we have a positive impact on all of the children and young people within the Trust.
