A message from Mrs Debi Bailey - NEAT Chief Executive Officer
I believe passionately that education opens doors. Having worked in the East End of Newcastle for 17 years in a range of roles including class teacher, Assistant Head, Deputy Head and then Head Teacher of Walkergate Community School, I know the community very well.
At the heart of NEAT is an absolute belief that partnerships make the difference. All of our schools put family working at the centre of everything we do. To that end, we have a dedicated welfare team who work with our families to overcome any barriers. Our schools have developed very effective partnerships across our local community and this enables us to support even our most vulnerable families.
Teaching and learning is integral to our work. We have invested a significant amount of time identifying, developing and sharing best practice and our MAT improvement plan is built on this principle. Furthermore, as one of our schools is a local secondary school, we feel we have a real opportunity to ensure seamless transition as we offer an all-through education from cradle to career.
