Vision & Values
Put simply, it is….‘…a coherent approach that aligns education, training, skills and employment services’, that will enable BBIH students to ‘develop the skills, qualifications, and experience they need to succeed in their careers and to make a positive contribution to our society and economy’. This is embodied by our Trust’s approach to raising standards in education for all, as we believe every young person deserves to have the best education possible.
The Trust vision was born out of the need for this type of alternative, high quality, human scale provision. Our students come from a variety of school experiences – with the common characteristic that mainstream provision is not meeting their needs or enabling them to realise their full potential. BBIH provides that rigorous, alternative progression route.
BBIH offers a curriculum that fills this gap with an occupational, business driven curriculum that links with their ‘real lives’ and aspirations; rather than the disconnect they may experience with current traditional academic routes or low level vocational pathways.
Our curriculum vision is not about equivalence, but a different type of success underpinned by a mentoring programme that puts young people at the heart of their future and their future success. Our vision is one that provides aspirational work related qualifications and pathways with a variety of exit routes at all levels to suit an individual and their choices. This, in turn, is supplemented by creative opportunities that extend beyond the core curriculum.The vision is built on a foundation of strong parental links and involvement coupled with the belief that all students, irrespective of race, faith, gender or background are entitled to
The vision is built on a foundation of strong parental links and involvement coupled with the belief that all students, irrespective of race, faith, gender or background are entitled to consistent, high-quality learning experiences. This will, in turn, lead to successful outcomes and futures and guarantee that our young people are equipped with the independence, resilience and social capital required in the 21st Century world.
Vision & Values
Trust agenda driven by:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the principals to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
- Overseeing the financial performance of the schools and making sure its money is well spent.
As trustees of a charity, academy trustees must comply with the following duties:
- Compliance – they must ensure that the charity’s resources are used for the charitable purpose and that the charity complies with the law and its governing document i.e. the articles of association.
- Care – they should take reasonable care in their work. In practice it simply means ensuring that the academy trust is managed efficiently and effectively. It also means considering the need for professional advice on matters where there may be material risk to the charity.
- Prudence – they must act responsibly, making sure that the academy trust’s assets are protected and used for the benefit of the charity. The trustees must make sure that the academy trust is solvent and keeps appropriate financial records. These requirements are reflected in the funding agreement and Financial Handbook.
