Senior Leaders, Teaching and Learning 
The Academy Senior Leaders have a responsibility of ensuring the effective delivery of a current, enriching curriculum to pupils and that the teaching standards aim to be and are focused to deliver outstanding lessons to pupils within their school or support across the Trust.  The Senior Leaders will be responsible for coordinating teaching approaches across the trust. Our strategy is to enhance strong collaboration and to facilitate targeted coaching and mentoring of staff to ensure a consistent approach and standards across the Trust.   As we grow will get to know each one of our academies individually, nurturing and developing them. We will build on existing positive ethos established within the local community to build school improvement.  We will seek to provide initial rapid support and build long term, sustainable school improvement strategies to improve life chances for every pupil. Our improvement strategy is based upon sharing professional experience and expertise across our academies within the Acer Learning Trust.
