Academies across the Ascent Academies Trust
Together we build brighter futures for our young people with special educational needs.
The Ascent Academies’ Trust is a vibrant and forward thinking Multi Academy Trust comprising four special academies, all of which are based in the North East of England. The Executive Team shares a strong, strategic view of all academies in the Trust and work in partnership to share best practice and improve outcomes for all students.
At Ascent, our core values of collaboration, high expectations, equity and respect permeate all that we do. We work within the Ethical Leadership Framework. From the moment a new member of staff arrives in our Trust, we ask them to live these values:
As leaders, we help each other as we are all responsible for children in our Trust. Our Trust is only as strong as its’ weakest academy and therefore we actively support Trust wide improvement and hold one another to account courageously.
We work to support each other as helping a member of our team is helping ourselves. Equitable, fair treatment of all our colleagues and young people is at the heart of what we do. We make decisions openly and transparently and always in the best interests of our young people.
We are honest about our motivations. We treat everyone with kindness and respect. We are loyal and have the courage to do the right thing. We are respectful, polite and good tempered at all times. We are genuine in our relationships with staff and families.
We have high expectations for ourselves and others. We focus on personal and professional development, knowing that we can always be better and do better. We grow people so that we have the capacity and ability to persevere with even the hardest work.
