The DEMAT promise encompasses providing the best education and life chances we can through nurturing our children’s values of Love, Community, Trust, Respect and Ambition.

We recognise the importance of continually improving the quality of education across our schools. And, as a result, we invest in the development of our curriculum, teaching and wider provision to ensure these improvements are realised.

Our schools give children the chance to learn, grow and make friends in a happy and inclusive environment. Most importantly, we provide them with a firm foundation for the future and the opportunity to thrive.

We equip children with the skills and knowledge to fulfil their potential, to build their confidence and aspirations. Our aim is to help them understand the positive role they can play in their local communities.

Above all, we seek to instil a lifelong love of learning and to expand each child’s horizons. In addition, we want to give them the tools to succeed in whatever they set their minds to.

Our vision is for every child to flourish and to be introduced to the richness of human experience. And we want children to understand, question and contribute to the world around them.
