Improvement planning

The Academy Improvement Plan focuses on the strategies that are known to make a difference to the education and therefore the life chances of our scholars. We have three key priorities reflecting our three drivers; each one has a clear intended impact attached to it. Below is a summary of the 2019 – 22 Improvement Plan.

In the height of #COVID19, I spent 9-months making a film with young people in #Bradford alongside @khidmat_centres @PishdaadC & partners on the youth experience. Many felt ignored, overlooked & unheard. This is the trailer to the upcoming launch film https://t.co/2c7uuOorVp https://t.co/lAJhZ4N0Yh
