The EMET Mission Statement
‘To ensure all our students realise their full potential and develop into young citizens who make a positive contribution to society’.
East Midlands Education Trust was formed in September 2014 with a mission to raise the educational standards and improve the life chances of students within the partnership. There are currently fourteen schools in our trust representing the full age range of 3 – 16 along with an alternative education provider.
EMET provides confident and strong strategic leadership underpinned by robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance in every school.
3 Core Functions
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the Trust, each school and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and
- Overseeing the financial performance of the Trust and each school and ensuring its money is well spent.
