"Learning together, making the difference"

The four circles under our logo remind us that our commitment is for everyone involved in the Focus-Trust, i.e. only by working together can we achieve the best for every child.

Professional honesty is at the heart of everything we do. The Trust knows the academies well because of the strong working partnership between academy leaders and the Trust team. It is only by being honest and transparent with a balance of credible challenge and effective support, that we can move forward and get the best for all children and staff. Our work is underpinned by the following values:


Be fair, honest and inclusive – demonstrating integrity


Expertise and best practice for the benefit of all learners


For children, adults and the learning environment.


To do things differently and have a go

By securing our commitment and values we expect learners to:

Feel safe and secure to take risks and make mistakes
Want to improve and know how to improve
Have high aspirations and be ready for the next steps in learning and life
Have high expectations of self
Be independent, resilient and respectful of self and others
Be tolerant and open-minded
Be happy and confident;
Have both independent and 
collaborative learning skills
