Diocese of Gloucester Academies Trust

We are delighted to have joined the Diocese of Gloucester Academies Trust (DGAT) 

DGAT’s vision is to enable all to flourish. They aim to be authentically Christian, boldly passionate about excellence in learning and relentlessly driven in in their aspiration for everyone. This fits well with our school vision of a caring, Christian community where we light a spark of curiosity, build on individual talents and give everyone the courage to live life in all its fullness.

DGAT is a thriving family of forward-thinking schools based in Gloucestershire. Established in 2012, there are 21 primary schools in the DGAT family, located in a mix of rural and urban settings. DGAT is boldly passionate about excellence in learning, for both our staff and our children, and are firm in their belief that every child has a right to experience success in an aspirational, inclusive, caring and supportive environment.

Supporting individual schools to be confident, outward-facing and responsive to the needs of their unique locality is core to DGAT. This is coupled with a strong sense of ‘together we are something more than ourselves’ – they celebrate successes, share good practice and provide support for one another when times are tricky.

A DGAT school is a special place where the uniqueness of an individual school meets the power of collective capacity - together we are stronger as we seek to unlock the potential within our family.

The Trust Board delegates local oversight of its schools to local governing boards. The Scheme of Delegation  sets out transparent delegations for specific areas of activity or decision making within DGAT and St Mary's Primary School.
