Approach and ethos

The Heath Family is centred on raising standards of achievement and aspirations for all students to the highest standard by developing and nurturing both primary and secondary academies.

We will be part of a local strategy to increase choice and diversity in education encompassing innovative approaches to curriculum, teaching and learning, leadership and management.

We will place an emphasis on talent management, developing leaders and enhanced professional development for all staff.
