A Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) is a government-funded independent family of schools that provides a very high standard of free education in the community, tailored specifically to the educational needs of local children of all learning abilities including special needs. MATs receive their funding from the Department for Education rather than through a local authority. This means they have much more freedom than other state schools over their finances, the curriculum, length of terms and school days and teachers’ pay and conditions. Academies are charitable companies subject to public standards of accountability. They are governed by their own head teachers, senior leadership teams and governing bodies, selected by a charitable trust which oversees the running of the academy. We have a long standing relationship with the diocese and in joining BDMAT this will only help to support the school in all that it does. Our MAT provides support to leaders/governors and staff through training and CPD. Every term the Headteacher attends standards meetings and is accountable to the MAT on all areas of data and standards.
