Leadership & Planning
A successful MAT will have a strong leadership team, with a shared vision and a clear strategy for how this vision will be realised. Good communication is vital, as is the ability for MAT leaders to access key data and management information from all their schools.
Shared policies and procedures, centralised IT infrastructure and systems to enable staff to work collaboratively across schools will free up time to focus on teaching and learning.
Communication & Collaboration
Whether it’s processes, systems, teaching resources, or just advice, all MATs can benefit from the sharing of best practice between schools.
Marketing & Recruiting
MATs need to attract new schools and become a desirable place to work. This element examines the ways in which a MAT can promote itself effectively whilst ensuring teachers, students and parents feel supported with a sense of belonging.
