The Bushey St James Trust is an exciting multi academy trust in Bushey, Hertfordshire made up of two academy schools, Bushey Meads Secondary School and Little Reddings Primary School. The two schools both became a Trust in February 2012 and the purpose behind the joint application was to develop links between primary and secondary phase education. The initial long-term vision of the Trust was to expand further to include other schools and also appoint an executive principal to shape the future work of the Trust. Jeremy Turner was appointed as Executive Principal of the Bushey St James Trust and Headteacher of Bushey Meads School in September 2014 as an experienced and outstanding headteacher to build on the initial vision and shape the effective structures across the Trust to create the capacity for further growth.

At the heart of the Trust is the desire to collaborate effectively and enable the two schools to build on their success and improve their performance, drawing on the experience of all staff across the Trust.

There is a shared vision to develop first class provision between the two phases and to:

• aim for excellence in all we do
• provide students with the best possible start for their futures
• nurture greater integration and community cohesion
• provide a programme of high quality continuing professional development and training for all staff to underpin and sustain improvements in teaching and learning
• emphasize to students the traditional values of self-discipline, responsibility, respect, trust and cooperation

The Trust is led by Sam Russell the Chair of the Trust, assisted by Jeremy Turner the Executive Principal of the Bushey St James Trust and the Vice Chair of the Trust Richard Abrahams.

Overseeing the work of the Trust is its strategic board. The board is made up as follows:

Sam Russell – Chair of BSJT
Richard Abrahams – Vice Chair of BSJT and appointed representative of Bushey Meads School
Jeremy Turner – Executive Principal of the BSJT
Jonathan Davies – Appointed representative of Bushey Meads School
Di Hoeksma – Chair of Governors and appointed representative of Bushey Meads School
Simon Kinna – Chair of Governors and appointed representative of Little Reddings School
Rev Dave Poultney – Appointed representative of Little Reddings School
Theresa Rodwell – Appointed representative of Little Reddings School

The board meets termly and the schools in the Trust are held to account for their performance against pre-agreed key performance indicators. The philosophies that underpin the trust are those based on partnership and collaboration and the Trust board wants to ensure that all children receive the best possible education and that all staff working in the trust are well equipped to deliver this.

The Bushey St James Trust values, underpinning the work of the Trust, aim to:
• deliver educational excellence
• ensure all children exceed expectations
• prepare young people for the future
• ensure that the Trust enhances the local community
• ensure that the schools within the Trust are happy, safe and inclusive

• inspire, nurture and empower all staff who work within the Trust
