Improvement planning

Academy Improvement Plan 2017-20

Our key drivers of mastery, autonomy and purpose* underpin our priorities for 2017-20:

1.  Mastery: the urge to get better and better at something that matters:
1.1  Demonstrate outstanding progress and achievement
1.2  Ensure learning is rigorous, engaging and underpinned by meaningful feedback
1.3  Embed a rich and exciting curriculum that embodies the laws of mastery

2.  Autonomy: the desire to direct our own lives:
2.1  Create a disciplined and joyful school culture
2.2  Develop gritty, confident and self-directed learners
2.3  Cultivate effective, autonomous leaders at every level of the organisation

3.  Purpose:  the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves:
3.1  Establish a genuine three-way partnership between families, students and staff
3.2  Work with the Dixons Academies to replicate best practice / contribute to improvement
3.3  Establish a strong reputation for Dixons Trinity Academy

*Adopted from Drive, Daniel Pink 2009.

Reflecting back on the past week and lockdown as a whole. I am so proud of my advisory and so grateful for every one of my colleagues at . They have made lockdown, a seemingly unpleasant time, an absolute joy. Also, what a memorable week of dream team speeches!
