About Us

We are a large, thriving academy situated at the heart of the vibrant, multicultural community of Easton and our motto is 'Being different. Belonging together'. We welcome children and families of all faiths and those with none. We are pleased to have more than 30 languages spoken in the school and we welcome those who have recently arrived in the country. Our vision is for our diverse community to grow together, have fun together and excel in learning. Our school is committed to working closely with the local community and has strong links with the neighbouring Easton Family Centre and our partner Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust schools.

We have great facilities at school. We have a large field and wonderful grounds including a forest area, bespoke early years playgrounds and a multi-use games area. We are able to make great use of our city centre location with trips to places such as the City Farm, SS Great Britain, Felix Road Adventure Playground and the Graffiti Tour. Ofsted visited us in November 2019 and graded the school as 'Good' with 'Outstanding' for personal development, recognising the rich curriculum and great opportunities our children receive, including Into University and projects with other schools like 'Children Just Like Me'.

Our children make great progress in learning and our teachers are experts in Talk 4 Writing, White Rose maths, Oracy and Sounds Write Phonics, as well as the Pivotal Behaviour approach. Our teachers share expertise with colleagues across the region and we are always keen to take on new ideas and keep learning ourselves.

Our Vision and Values

'Being different. Belonging together'

Our vision is for our diverse community to grow together, have fun together and excel in learning.

How do we grow together? We say:

'Act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.' (Micah 6 verse 8)

Acting justly means that we treat each other well and act fairly. We welcome families of all faiths and races and actively work to understand each other's different backgrounds. Being merciful means that we use restorative practices to mend relationships when things go wrong. Walking humbly means that we understand that everyone is important here and everyone is listened to.

How do we have fun together?

We have so many opportunities at Easton. We love sport, playing in our extensive grounds, cooking and eating together, learning about festivals, going on trips, welcoming visitors, making music and art. Ofsted (Nov 2019) said that Personal Development was 'Outstanding'.

How do we excel in learning?

We teach writing using Talk for Writing and have seen very successful writing results. We teach maths and phonics using nationally recognised schemes and see children making great progress. We have three libraries across the school and foster a love of books and reading. We are ambitious for all our children and work closely with parents to support home learning.

Our learning characteristics help us learn:

Critical thinking, Teamwork, Resilience, Creativity

These are another way of expressing our 'Easton Es': Excellence with Equity, Endeavour with Enjoyment.

Our Calm School Code helps us behave well

  • Act Kindly
  • Speak Nicely
  • Work Hard
  • Move Calmly
  • Listen Carefully

About Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust

For more vacancies for DBAT please click here.

DBAT was founded in 2012, enabling the Diocese of Bristol’s Board of Education to sponsor academies.

The management of its affairs are overseen by its Board of Directors which operates a flexible Scheme of Delegation. This is based on the principle of detailed monitoring against and evaluation of Ofsted and Diocesan Distinctiveness criteria of all academies in the MAT and increasing ‘earned autonomy’ once academies demonstrate they are ‘good’ or better.

Mission Statement

DBAT’s core purposes are to:

• focus on improving the educational experiences, employment prospects and life chances of young people, especially those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds;
• demonstrate that children’s life-chances are improved when their formal education is within the context of an Academy that is founded in the Christian tradition, establishes an ethos that is distinctively Christian and embraces the very best practices in teaching, learning, leadership, management and safety;
• accelerate students’ levels of attainment and achievement, and raises student, teacher and parental aspirations and ambitions;
• help to create more cohesive communities enhancing opportunities for social mobility by striving to eliminate the attainment gap between students from disadvantaged backgrounds and young people who by circumstances of birth and inheritance take for granted their automatic right to a good education;
• transform the overall performance of underperforming schools in deprived areas, helping to improve and innovate in all aspects of teaching, learning and leadership and promoting the development of future leaders.


Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust (DBAT) aspires to transform the educational landscape of the Diocese, working with all Church academies (including educationally under-performing academies in disadvantaged socio-economic areas) to accelerate student attainment and contribute to community cohesion, so transforming academy performance and students’ life chances through excellent leadership.


DBAT adopts the Diocesan values for schools which is that families of schools collectively meet all students’ needs and are based on the fundamental belief that all students can achieve, succeed and thrive. We own that it is our job to ensure this happens so that:
• Families protect all their member schools
• Families of schools meet the needs of all employees
• Families facilitate knowledge transfer
• Families distribute innovation
• Families save time and money
• Families ensure that all students can achieve, succeed and thrive
• Families deal effectively with special educational needs
• Families support new and existing leaders
• Families embed the capacity to improve/manage change
• Families build leadership capacity and succession
• Families aid the integration of Children’s services

In all Families there will be stronger and weaker partners but all are valued.
