Church schools are integral to the ministry and mission of the Church and can offer an outstanding Education delivered through a genuine christian ethos.
They do this by loving and valuing all humanity equally; by proclaiming the Gospel through all of their words, and actions, and the quality of the community life and concern for individuals. Church schools are called to bring fullness of life to their pupils, whatever the beliefs of the children and young people or their families.
Each school within the MAT is unique and distinctive and we are committed to celebrating the local context and purpose of each school. Our vision is for all of our schools to become highly successful and meet the needs of the community in which they serve. Our vision is for all of our schools to become something in which children, parents, staff and the community are proud of.
We are bound by a number of guiding principles:
The purpose of the BWMAT is to secure the rapid and sustained improvement of all of its academies. The BWMAT will enable schools to work together, share expertise and maximise resources. Our vision is for a family of Bath & Wells academies that offers a great learning experience for every child.
We seek to ensure the best possible educational outcome for every child. The BWMAT believes that every child has the right to a good education and this will be achieved within a distinctively Christian context, valuing each child as an individual and enabling them to discover and develop their God given gifts.
As academies within the BWMAT grow and develop, they will be expected and required to share their journey, skills and expertise with other Bath & Wells academies. The BWMAT will encourage and nurture the dissemination of good practice, fostering a self-sustaining culture of aspiration for educational excellence across all schools and exemplifying Christian values in every area.
