At SDMAT we want all of our schools to have their own identity and sense of purpose that reflects the needs and ethos of their community. We also recognise that we are stronger when we can work together and share the best practice within our schools to benefit the education of all of our children. All schools within our MAT ensure:
- We put children first - we care deeply about all of the children in our schools and are committed to combatting disadvantage by ensuring children achieve the highest standards;
- Staff are valued and have a common sense of purpose – staff have clear roles, a work/life balance and the opportunities to develop and grow and become experts in their profession;
- Our communities feel proud of the school their child attends and benefit from our work in helping children enter the adult world as valued members of society who have much to contribute.
