Why join the DMAT journey?
We understand that schools are unique organisations
At DMAT we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. We celebrate and value the uniqueness of each school within a shared vision and common values; ensuring the best for every child and investing in our staff. We work together to understand each school’s context and support them in delivering their priorities.
You can trust us to work with you to deliver the best outcomes for every child
Our ethos and culture is built upon decades of success from school leaders within DMAT who understand the challenges schools face. The education of the young people we serve is too important to be left to chance. We will support you to deliver your school priorities.
Our focus on an evidence informed approach frames effective professional development
Having only one of 32 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.
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.
