ACE Vision

Together we will develop and utilise all of our expertise in supporting each other. 

(Autonomy, Collaboration, Excellence)

 We will:

  • Always focus first on the quality of teaching and learning to ensure that all pupils receive an outstanding education
  • Make learning exciting, engaging and fun!
  • Raise standards in all of our schools through our team of experienced school leaders and consultants

  • Ensure effective performance management systems are in place to support continuous improvement

  • Provide value for money

  • Develop our leadership, management and governance teams

  • Provide support for LABs to enable them to make a significant impact in raising standards

ACE School Council
Two representatives from each ACE Academy come together regularly to share ideas, link the academies closer together and give the children an opportunity to meet, and work with, council members from other schools.  The sharing of ideas and successes will then be disseminated back to their own school councils.
