Billericay Community Trust
The Billericay Community Trust (BCT) is a registered charity comprising of fifteen schools in Billericay, Anglia Ruskin University and Billericay Educational Consortium. Through working with partners within and beyond the Trust, the BCT’s aims are:
• Delivering excellence in learning through enhanced collaboration between all learning providers
• Maximising efficient use of resources
• promotion of community cohesion
Delivering excellence in learning through enhanced collaboration between all learning providers
In recent years the BCT has been designated Teaching School Status. This has enabled the Trust to work beyond the boundaries of Billericay to develop excellence in teaching, learning and leadership. An integral part of this work is to develop high quality primary and secondary teachers from trainees through to senior leaders.
Maximising efficient use of resources
Headteachers have a strong shared belief that through the pooling of resources they can maximise the impact of resources available. Schools meet regularly to review best value in terms of quality, consistency, efficiency and cost. Schools jointly employ a Home/School Liaison worker, a Language Worker, two Home/School Attendance Officers and children’s counselling services for the benefit of children and families in their care.
Promotion of community cohesion
The BCT works with a range of local partners to ensure that schools and education remain at the heart of the community.
