HCPS made the decision to become an academy in order to protect our commitment to primary education and this moral purpose has continued to develop through the Hoyland Common Academy Trust. We believe it is vital that all schools in our partnerships continue to be attended by pupils from our local communities.
We have a robust and secure system of local governance – that will continue to lead strategically in the development of school. This will be underpinned by principles of the trust supported by the Board of Trustees and members.
Working in partnership will develop the skills and professionalism for all our staff, providing them with development opportunities that will help the schools to retain the excellent expertise that the schools have at both a teaching and leadership level. This would mean that there would be a significant investment in high quality professional development of all staff.
The educational landscaping is changing and, more than ever, educational establishments can benefit from joint partnerships and collaboration with HCAT in order to continue to be challenged and to improve.
