Executive Principal’s Introduction

I am proud to lead the Bolton Impact Trust as its Executive Principal. I have 20 years of experience in providing education to children in Bolton with behavioural, medical and mental health needs and am pleased to say that four of our five provisions received good or outstanding judgements when they last received an Ofsted inspection. In total eight of our inspections have resulted in outstanding overall judgements.

We are making good progress in improving standards in our role as sponsors to Lever Park and our key priorities remain ensuring that all of our pupils are able to learn in an environment which supports high quality teaching and pastoral support.

The Trust is based upon values which include giving pupils a fresh start and our fundamental aim is always to provide our children with the opportunities to return to mainstream education if appropriate. In instances where this isn’t possible, we will always endeavour to provide them with the equality of opportunity which their mainstream peers are entitled to.

Celebrating achievement is our motto. This is supported by a set of clear values built around the central principles of unconditional positive regard, affection and warmth.

More personalised provision is provided to those pupils who require non-traditional learning environments. This includes teaching in the home, at our off site provision and in hospital.

Pupils may attend our Academies on either full time or part time timetables as we pride ourselves on creating personalised learning programmes for all of our learners.
