Welcome to Empowering Minds MAT
Empowering Minds Trust is a growing child-centred Multi Academy Trust where challenge, collaboration, inclusivity and support is at the heart of our ethos. We intend to develop the children we teach to be independent, strong, empowered individuals who fully understand their place in the world.
We are a family of schools where every child/young person receives the best possible education through the sharing of best practice and world class professional development opportunities for staff. We have the highest of expectations, promoting excellence and personal achievement. We believe that children should be at the centre of everything we do and receive the best possible education. The well-being of our pupils is our number one priority. Today’s school pupils are growing up in a rapidly changing world, with a wealth of possibilities but many risks and anxieties too, particularly in relation to pupils’ mental health, self-esteem, relationships and their safety, both online and offline. Our academies follow an established nurturing ethos, rooted in the Thrive approach, facilitated by trained staff to identify and support pupils with any emotional, social or behavioural needs.
At Southfield, we try our very best to help children to become young people who love to learn.
At Tranmoor Primary School , we are all driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve.
At Bessacarr Primary Academy we want you to love your learning and be interested in what you do.
At Highwoods Academy we have a group of dedicated professionals who educate and care for your children.
