Message from our Principal
As Principal at Star Academy, Sandyford I would like to introduce you to our Academy, which will provide you with an insight into what we do and the commitment we have to our community as a whole.
Star Academy is set in the heart of a diverse community where the shared motto is ‘Desire to learn, learn to achieve’.
Our Vision is underpinned by four key behaviour values: Smart/Safe, Tolerant, Ambitious, Resilient.
Daily routines work to embed these four values in order to ensure that our children grow not only academically, but with the strength of character that will lead to a successful future as a valued and healthy member of society.
The academy seeks to ensure that all stakeholders are empowered to achieve the highest of expectations through the provision of a bespoke, lively and exciting, knowledge-based curriculum that promotes enquiry and exploration, risk-taking and resilience. The curriculum nurtures the desire to achieve the very best - regardless of the children’s different starting points. Our broad curriculum is enriched with a huge variety of experiences which brings learning alive and makes precious memories.
If you would like to learn more about Star Academy, please visit our website and if you decide that this is where you would like to be, please feel free to arrange a visit, where you will be welcomed with open arms to experience the joy and excitement that is Star Academy.
Our team knows first-hand how to make education better for schools, pupils and their teachers.
For us, the future of UK education relies upon schools working closely together to share best practices, giving every child the best chance in life. We set up ATT to make this vision a reality.
As a not for profit trust, we work with our growing family of primary and secondary academies, and further education providers in the Midlands, East of England and South East.
Our mission is to provide the very best education for all pupils and the highest level of support for our staff to ensure every child leaves our academies with everything they need to reach their full potential.
We have one core purpose:
To have the biggest positive impact in the varied communities we serve through ensuring top drawer education for our learners. #TransformingLives
How do we ensure this across our trust?
In all we do we are:
What does this look like across our trust?
Our ‘Institute’ is an umbrella term for all people development available to all ATT stakeholders. It serves our whole ATT community: children and young people, parents and carers, employees and the wider community.
We are committed to the very best people development. We empower all stakeholders through equality of opportunity and place the needs of our stakeholders and the communities we serve at the front and centre of all we do. We believe we are better together and value collaboration within and beyond our organisation. ATT People Development activities will be the very best learning our stakeholders have ever had. Through high-quality people development we will all transform lives and communities.
Our Institute is a learning eco-system through which all people within our communities and beyond can thrive. It starts with the belief that we are all leaders of our eco-system. Leadership does not just come from the top; it has to be genuinely stakeholder-led. Irrespective of our role: admin, education, estates, finance, governance and operations, we all have a responsibility to make things better for children and young people and to help ensure that teachers are delivering a top drawer education. Thus, we have a professional obligation to keep getting better through engagement in people development activities so that the ‘edge’ between schools and communities, where educators work with pupils, parents and carers and communities is the best it can possibly be.
We resolutely believe it is our moral and professional imperative to hear all voices and use our own agency to develop others within and beyond our Trust. ATT employees must use their local leadership to develop and lead others beyond their immediate setting and beyond our own Institute. The advancement of our Institute in this way, will lead to whole of system improvement and transform more lives and more communities.
Flexible working gives employees the opportunity to achieve a better balance between work and other commitments, often by making small changes to working patterns and hours. Managers will make every effort to appreciate an employee's needs such as family responsibilities, work and caring responsibilities and be flexible as possible to try and accommodate their required working hours.
At Academy Transformation Trust we put our people's welfare and wellbeing at the centre of everything. Our Wellbeing Strategy covers 4 key areas: Working Environment, Personal Growth, Health and Lifestyle Initiatives and Culture. We aim to promote and maintain the health & wellbeing of employees, with the goal being to enable a positive relationship between an employee's work and their health.
An example of the type of support available to you;
Retail discounts on hundreds of high street and online retailers are available through our Together Benefit’s Platform. Saving you money on everything from fashion, groceries, leisure activities, cinema and days out. This also includes a bike scheme, gym scheme and an employee assistance programme which gives you access to free, external, confidential advice on personal and/or work-related issues. We also offer employees an in-house Occupational Health service supporting health and wellbeing.
On our journey of #transforminglives, we are building a Diverse and Inclusive Community. We are aspiring to promote our Inclusivity, via Curriculum and Employee engagement. Together, we want to break down barriers, enjoy each individual and celebrate the value they bring to our Trust Family.
