AboutUs

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. Vision 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.
