Our Vision and Values
‘To Love, To Learn, To Serve’ sums up the DoWMAT’s vision for those who come together to create the MAT, enabling all to flourish both as individuals and in community with each other; living life in all its fullness (John 10:10).
These core values underpin all aspects of our Trust as we strive to make a positive difference to the lives of all DoWMAT pupils whilst they are at school and in later life. Through these values, we can be sure our community is one of hope; a place of transformation and trust, where all are treated with respect and dignity.
OUTSTANDING PROFESSIONALS : COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIPS : STRONG SYSTEMS : CONFIDENT LEARNERS
The Church of England Vision for Education
The DoWMAT Vision and Values, spring from and encompass the Church of England Vision for Education;
'We aim to deliver excellence in education and want the very best outcomes for children and young people so that they can achieve their fullest potential. With many schools reporting that they feel under increasing pressure to make artificial choices between academic rigour and the wellbeing of their pupils, we are unequivocal in our message that there is no such distinction – a good education must promote life in all its fullness.' (Church of England Vision for Education Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good)
For those who would like to know more about this vision and what it means for our DoWMAT Church academies, the following documents are a recommended read.
