Pansophic Learning is an international educational company operating schools in the US, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. They have established Aurora Academies Trust (AAT) to operate academies in the UK
AAT was established to provide:
More opportunities – to make sure every pupil achieves the very best that they can, AAT’s focus is on working with the Academies senior leaders and teachers to raise achievement through the curriculum innovation, regular and targeted assessment, increased attendance and individualised paths for personal growth and development.
More choice – Each academy partners with other academies in AAT as well as with Pansophic Learning schools internationally, which means the academies are able to share resources and experiences. AAT academies work with partners both locally and internationally, meaning that pupils enjoy a wider range of learning experiences which enhance their personal, spiritual, moral and cultural education.
Improved teaching and learning – Aurora Academies Trust encourages what is good and builds on strengths. We look to see how things can be done better and are never afraid to take risks and to innovate. AAT concentrates on continually improving standards throughout our academies at a rapid pace and by improving the quality of teaching and learning through the introduction of a comprehensive staff training programme and regular, targeted assessment.
WE ALWAYS AIM TO:
Raise aspirations – through the introduction of a new philosophy and ethos, based on Pansophic Learning’s proven philosophy used internationally, to bring educational improvements to our academies, pupils and communities worldwide. All pupils have individualised paths for personal growth and development, with a focus on pupil self-awareness and self-esteem.
Increase Parent engagement and involvement – Regular community events are held where parents and other members of the local community are invited to see what the children have been learning, meet with staff and become more engaged in their child’s education.
Have better resources – Through being part of a group of academies we use our collective strength to bring about improvements to classroom environments and buildings.
