In an ever changing educational landscape, there’s never been a better time to change.
So why would you choose to be a part of the DMAT journey?
You can trust us to work with you to deliver significant improvement
Our ethos and culture is built upon decades of success from school leaders within DMAT who understand the challenges of working in schools in our locality. The education of the young people we serve is too important to be left to chance. We know what is needed to help them grow, flourish and go beyond their best.
We will free school leaders' time to focus on their core purpose.
Within DMAT we have a strong framework of policies, systems and support, including financial, HR and legal services. This support frees up school leaders within our schools to focus on their core purpose – improving the quality of teaching and learning.
We understand that schools are unique organisations
At DMAT we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. We also want our schools to maintain their individual identity, within the DMAT framework. So, we take the time to get to know our schools, understand their context and the challenges they are facing. This then allows us to work together to formulate a bespoke and high impact plan to secure success for all.
Our focus on an evidence informed approach frames effective professional development
Having only one of 23 Research Schools within the trust means that the use of evidence is at the heart of everything we do. This ensures that we have a wide ranging and flexible programme of support and development activities for teachers and leaders, based on the most relevant and up to date educational research. This means that DMAT staff focus their efforts on what works – and not what might work.
