Collaboration

Collaboration is at the heart of our school improvement and support...

At Cheshire Academies Trust we aim to offer a complete package of support for teachers and leaders through deep collaborative practice. 


CAT was created with a strong sense of moral purpose to provide the best educational opportunities for children and an aspiration to improve the quality of teaching and learning in all our academies. We have created a Trust in which schools support each other to enable their children and staff to thrive through a creative approach to collaboration. There is a strong sense of ownership and belonging to our CAT family; this ensures we go above and beyond to support and help each other.


CAT encourages its academies to retain their unique qualities. Leaders continue to lead their schools in the way they see fit with the Trust supporting their drive to develop and improve. Where academies need support and intervention, it is proportionate to need and offered sensitively with thoughtfulness.

Attached below is a list of the many meeting in which we offer colleagues to work together to develop practice and policies.
