The LETTA Trust was awarded the Platinum Award!

The LETTA Trust, made up of Bygrove and Stebon Primary Schools, has been awarded Platinum accreditation against Investors in People Standard, demonstrating their commitment to realising the potential of their people.

Mathew Filbee, the IIP assessor commented “All those interviewed agreed that professionalism, learning and coaching, expertise, collaboration, teamwork, innovation and the people culture are what make the LETTA Trust the success it is today and they are happy working there.”

“The school cultures have evolved and even more managers have been developed and are adopting the same ‘people first’ philosophy as the Leadership team, so that both centrally and in local teams everyone reported an even more positive and engaging working culture.”

The assessor also stated, “As an accredited SCITT, Apprenticeship provider and Kickstart Gateway organisation LETTA is delivering a huge amount to the benefit of education in Tower Hamlets and beyond.”

In conclusion, Mathew Filbee added:

“The positive ethos of LETTA is lived day-in, day-out and is focused on the whole person, both for children and staff.”

“The LETTA Trust is seen as being a friendly organisation that cares deeply about its staff and lives the ethos it has defined for itself. It has very high standards, but this is matched by high levels of care and support for people, both pupils and staff.”

Therefore, “The result of this assessment confirms that the commitment to people, both the pupils who attend The LETTA Trust and to staff, is genuine and is applied with levels of maturity.
