MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE PRINCIPAL

It is a real privilege to be the Executive Principal of the Bushey St James Trust (BSJT) and work alongside Carly Simmonds, the Headteacher of Little Reddings Primary School and all the hard working and highly competent Trustees and Governors.

Together with the all the experienced and well qualified senior school leaders and of course the wider body of staff in both settings, it is exciting to see our innovative and forward thinking Multi Academy Trust develop and secure a promising future for the Trust in this area of South West Hertfordshire.

Within the context of a rapidly changing educational landscape, the BSJT Trustees are determined to see a high performing multi academy trust deliver the very best educational experience for all pupils at both primary and secondary level. The information on the website reinforces our clear commitment to embedding excellent leadership and governance, and a real focus on teaching and learning and raising standards for all young people.

We work hard to develop and maintain a cost effective learning community, applying a business model that balances efficiency with educational effectiveness and growing economies of scale, in order to free up more resources for the vibrant classrooms across our schools. It is superb to have a strong Multi Academy Trust Board of Directors who provide the effective support and challenge required to ensure that the Trust is a good employer for all staff within the Trust.

I look forward to an exciting future for the Trust and all its stakeholders – students and the wider families, staff, Governors and Trustees.

Jeremy Turner

Executive Principal
