Welcome to the website of the Diocese of St Albans Multi-Academy Trust, a Church of England Trust that is passionate about creating and maintaining Church of England Academies which serve their local communities through the provision of a rich and diverse curriculum underpinned by Christian Values.
The Trust has a clear vision which shapes its work:
Committed to human flourishing: Rooted in God’s Love
And together our academies work to be places of:
Hope: Nurture: Hospitality: Equality: Respect: Collaboration
The Trust's vision is underpinned by a Christian values framework which will be adopted by all Academies and provides clear expectations for all DSAMAT employees on how the Trust expects its Christian values to impact on all areas of Academy life. This was developed by the Trust's Headteachers during 2017 and will be formally launched in the Summer term 2018. Each Academy will be able to develop and implement its own local Christian values programme that takes account of their local context. This will draw on and be informed by the National Church of England Vision for Education and the Diocesan Board of Education Vision.
Underpinning all of the Trust’s work is a belief in educational excellence. The Trust believes it is called to serve all stakeholders by providing academies with the highest levels of academic rigour and pastoral care. The Trust’s academies will be places where children and young people develop and thrive intellectually, socially, culturally and spiritually. All of the Trust's schools will teach a broad and balanced curriculum within national guidelines focusing on core skills. This is designed to ensure that all pupils reach their academic potential and seek to enrich their experience along the way. Pupils will be enabled to succeed in an atmosphere of high expectation, aspiring to educational excellence with a firm foundation of Christian values.
