It is the intention of DSAMAT to retain individual school admissions policies on entry as these form a fundamental part of a school’s character. The admissions process will be overseen, however, by the Diocesan Admissions Adviser, in conjunction with each school, and each admissions policy will have to be agreed by DSAMAT Directors before implementation.


DSAMAT is fully committed to the safeguarding of the children and young people who attend Academies within the Trust. Academies are required to undertake a safeguarding audit within 6 weeks of joining the Trust. To support schools the Trust has formed a safeguarding group that will draw together Designated Safeguarding Persons on a monthly basis to ensure practice, at an Academy level, is of the highest standard.

Academies within the Trust will maintain their existing safeguarding policies on admittance and these will be updated in line with national guidance until such time as the Trust introduces a standardised safeguarding policy. On formation each local Academy Council will retain its individual responsibility for safeguarding at a local level, will ensure an appropriate designated safeguarding officer is in place and that staff training is of the highest standard in this area.


Good and Outstanding schools will retain the right to develop and implement their own curricular policies which meet local needs but will have access to a bank of shared policy documentation. Where schools require improvement or are graded inadequate the DSAMAT reserves the right to adopt policies to ensure standards rise rapidly.
