Our Mission

To deliver a high quality education for children and young people of all faiths and none, underpinned by our Christian distinctiveness.

Welcome to the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust (DEMAT)

The Church of England has been providing high quality education in England for more than 200 years.

The DEMAT promise encompasses providing the best education and life chances through nurturing our children’s values of Love, Community, Trust, Respect and Ambition.

We recognise the importance of continually improving the quality of education across our schools.

As a result, we will invest in developing our curriculum, teaching and wider provision to ensure these improvements are realised.

Our schools will give children the chance to learn, grow and make friends in a happy and inclusive environment. Most importantly, we will provide them with a firm foundation for the future and the opportunity to thrive.

We will equip children with the skills and knowledge to fulfil their potential, to build their confidence and aspirations. So, our aim is to help them understand the positive role they can play in their local communities.

Above all, we seek to instil a lifelong love of learning and to expand each child’s horizons. In addition, we will give them the tools to succeed in whatever they set their minds to.

Our vision is that children flourish and are introduced to the richness of human experience. Likewise, we want children to understand, question and contribute to the world around them.

Core Strands

Our strategic plan will be delivered through four core strands, all of which are underpinned by our Christian distinctiveness.

  1. Children are at the heart of all we do
  2. Keep close to the work
  3. Maintaining a legacy, creating new traditions
  4. Aspirational, yet sustainable

Children are at the heart of all we do

We believe that every decision should be taken in the best interests of children.

Keep close to the work

We believe that all staff should be enabled to deliver the core purpose of their work without distraction. Similarly, leaders, at all levels, should empathise with and develop their understanding of what is happening in the classroom.

Maintaining a legacy, creating new traditions

We believe in the importance of continuing the legacy of Anglican Church education. And, moreover, the need to build new traditions as a DEMAT family.

Aspirational, yet sustainable

We believe it is important to ensure our high aspirations are supported by a sustainable approach to education, finances and the environment.
