WELCOME

Oak Multi Academy Trust


Oak Trust is a partnership of schools in Leicestershire and Leicester CIty with a shared ethos, common values and collective goals. We do not have a 'lead' school, instead a collaborative approach within a framework that encourages and supports a high degree of autonomy for each school, recognising that each school has a particular character and set of strengths.

Oak Trust is committed to providing an inspirational education which allows all our pupils to realise their full potential as learners and citizens through excellent teaching, learning and development of the whole child. We will meet the needs of our unique schools and communities through collaboration, support and challenge.

Principles of Public Life

Oak Trust subscribes fully to the principles described by the work of the Committee on Standards in Public Life (The ‘Nolan’ principles,1995).  We commit to recognising the importance of these principles and expect all employees, governors, trustees, members and any other officers of the trust to uphold them at all times.

They are:

  1. Selflessness

Holders of public office should act solely in terms of the public interest.

  1. Integrity

Holders of public office must avoid placing themselves under any obligation to people or organisations that might try inappropriately to influence them in their work. They should not act or take decisions in order to gain financial or other material benefits for themselves, their family, or their friends. They must declare and resolve any interests and relationships.

  1. Objectivity

Holders of public office must act and take decisions impartially, fairly and on merit, using the best evidence and without discrimination or bias.

  1. Accountability

Holders of public office are accountable to the public for their decisions and actions and must submit themselves to the scrutiny necessary to ensure this.

  1. Openness

Holders of public office should act and take decisions in an open and transparent manner. Information should not be withheld from the public unless there are clear and lawful reasons for so doing.

  1. Honesty

Holders of public office should be truthful.

  1. Leadership

Holders of public office should exhibit these principles in their own behaviour. They should actively promote and robustly support the principles and be willing to challenge poor behaviour wherever it occurs.
