“Working and learning together to improve children’s lives”



Vision, Aims and Values

YCAT’s core purpose is to ensure every child in all our schools reaches their full potential. We achieve this by true collaborative practice.

To achieve our vision, we aim to be Responsive, Transformative and Inspirational:



We respond to our children's needs on a daily basis, transforming their learning and development.  We inspire our children to become life long learners who have the confidence, knowledge and skills to take a full and active part in their local, regional and global communities.


We respond to the developmental needs of our staff to transform their professional growth. Everyone in our Trust is part of a dynamic self-improving learning community that nurtures, supports and challenges both children and adults to achieve their full potential.  Our learning community grows expert practitioners who share their skills to develop others and inspire the next generation of school leaders.


Our Responsive, Transformative and Inspirational ethos empowers our learning community to achieve, contribute, share and sustain excellence in all areas.

We are committed to the following values:#

  1.  To care for children, adults and fully promote the safeguarding and welfare of children. 
  2. To ensure equality of access for pupils and staff across our schools
  3. To encourage self-improving and reflective staff who share best practice to improve provision for all of our children
  4. To challenge and support each other to continue to improve our provision.
