Business Plan 2019-2022

A welcome from the CEO

Every Child, Every Chance

Welcome to the 2019-2022 Business Plan for Equa Multi Academy Trust.

Equa is now in its first year of operation and has achieved a great deal since its inauguration. The Trust was founded on a strong moral purpose to support others, so that young people are enabled to achieve their very best, therefore our success should always be measured against the positive impact we have had on the life of every pupil. The drive for high standards is embodied by the improvement in attainment that has been seen in all of our academies.

An outstanding Trust needs an outstanding workforce and this is central to our success. We will continue to invest in our staff, identify and promote talent and use the skills of individuals to make us stronger.

We have achieved a great deal so far but are ready to go further. Through ongoing self-analysis, review and learning from others, we strive to be one of the best Trusts in the country and be renowned for excellent practice in all areas. Following a period of establishment, we are now ready to expand Equa by inviting new partners to join us in this exciting phase of our development so that we work together to deliver excellence for our pupils.

This Business Plan provides a clear strategic direction for the coming years, which will enable the Trust to fulfil its aim of giving ‘Every Child, Every Chance’

Equa Multi Academy Trust is a group of high achieving schools providing excellence in education for 2 – 19 year olds.  We are a family of five church primary schools and a secondary school, all based in rural Wiltshire.

At the heart of everything we do is the child.  It is our mission to provide the very best education to all young people, whatever their age or stage, in our rural location.  We know that education can transform lives, providing social mobility by tackling rural deprivation, and overcoming barriers.  

Through fantastic teaching and learning, wrap around holistic care, and amazing enrichment and leadership opportunities, we ensure that all children thrive by developing self-esteem and high aspirations, to make sure no child gets left behind.

Our values are at the core of all we do, and we cherish the faith foundation of our primary schools.  We believe that each child is gifted and unique, and deserves to be nurtured in our schools, whatever their background.
