Schools deemed Inadequate

Where provision in a Church of England school is deemed Inadequate by Ofsted and a directive Academy Order has been issued, the Diocesan Board of Education and DSAMAT will be directly involved in the brokering process with the Department for Education and the Regional Schools Commissioner’s office. It is an expectation both nationally and locally that Church of England schools will be placed in Church of England provision, either in a Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust or a local, school-led, Church of England Multi-Academy Trust. This expectation is outlined in a Memorandum of Understanding between the Department for Education and the Church of England Education Office, the national body that represents the Church of England’s educational interests. Due diligence will be undertaken in the usual manner and any agreement for a school to join the Trust will be in principle until due diligence is undertaken.


It is expected that it will take no longer than twelve months to process an application to join the Trust where a school is deemed Inadequate.
