However to make the relationship really work you have to find the ‘right’ MAT for your school; a MAT that reflects your school’s own values and vision and with a ‘plan for the future’ that fits your own. At LAAT we are passionate about our school community, we are committed to ensuring that every child receives the best education possible. We value the individuality of each of our school’s and seek to use our combined strength to improve, support, and challenge each one.
We deliver lots of back office support and advice, and we facilitate an enormous amount of staff training and development but we do it so that the teaching and learning at each school is the best that it can be.
We have a team of School Effectiveness Advisers (SEAs) who work with Head Teachers to drive improvement and progress. We visit schools regularly to monitor progress and offer support where required. We run LAAT Headteacher Development days where we share good practice, discuss staff development, pupil attainment, engage in specialist workshops or presentations and where Head Teachers from different schools can share experiences and ideas.
