Diocese of Worcester

Multi-Academy Trust

Academy Effectiveness Programme

The Diocese of Worcester Multi Academy Trust (DoWMAT) is fully committed to ensuring every child within the Trust receives a high quality education, enabling each child to secure maximum progress through each academic year.


Academy improvement within the Trust is led by our Academy Improvement Lead, Mr. John McMillan,  who has a clear understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of all academies within the Trust.


Each DoWMAT academy  receives a half termly Academy Effectiveness Visit, affording academy leaders the opportunity to reflect on their impact to date, celebrate achievements and map out actions for next steps within a supportive and challenging framework.


Once priorities are decided upon, the Trust employs a number of internal and external advisors to work alongside our leaders to ensure their setting is providing the very best for each and every pupil.


Our academy effectiveness approach keeps a close eye on key groups where underachievement has been identified nationally:


  • Disadvantaged pupils
  • Pupils with SEND

Remote Learning and meeting the needs of our pupils at home during lockdown has also been a key feature of our recent discussions.
