About Liverpool Diocesan Schools Trust

Multi-academy trust

The Liverpool Diocesan Schools Trust was established in 2017 by the Diocese of Liverpool. We now have 18 schools in our family – 17 primary and one secondary school - with ambitions for further growth across both sectors.

Built upon our distinctly Christian values, we have a strong track record of school improvement, as evidenced in recent OFSTED and SIAMs inspections and our outcomes at primary are consistently above national averages. This has been achieved through a strong culture of collaboration, enabling best practice to be shared and talented staff to thrive; an unshakeable expectation for every child to achieve; and a commitment to continuing to develop ourselves and our practices.
As a Diocesan Trust, our Christian values are intrinsically linked to our commitment to provide an innovative, high quality education, so that children and learners make excellent progress and fulfil their academic potential.

We do this through:
- Being a family of schools that is committed to well-being and supporting each other, so that all children, learners and staff across our Trust, flourish.
- Connecting with each other to share practice and provide an excellent education that is built on distinctly Christian values.
- A commitment to inclusion, ensuring that all learners thrive through an education that teaches wisdom, instils hope, nurtures community, and embeds dignity and respect.
- Strong bonds of collaboration, innovative approaches to education and a shared purpose amongst schools, families, and communities.

What does our Trust care about and how do the values match up?

LDST is a distinctly Christian Trust. We want our children to receive an excellent education built on distinctly Christian values. We are respectful and responsive to the individual needs of our schools, whilst determined to make a difference to learners across all schools.

We have four core values:
Our commitment to ‘collaboration’ ensures that we connect and work in partnership for the benefit of learners and staff across our Trust. Staff across our schools work as a family carrying out research, sharing practice, developing resources, and increasing expertise. Leaders at all levels, including Headteachers and Chairs of Governors, have regular networks and forum meetings to discuss, solve problems and make collective decisions for the good of all schools.
With such strong bonds of collaboration, we can support our schools to enhance the opportunities and outcomes for their pupils and staff by:

• Developing and sharing best practice in education, teaching, learning, curriculum, and outcomes
• Co-ordinating staff recruitment, professional training, and career development to create a skilled, motivated, expert workforce
• Working collaboratively to increase operational efficiency and making optimum use of available resources
Our commitment to ‘local’ means that our schools are local schools, led by local leaders and governors, serving local communities. Our central team supports and empowers our leaders to provide the highest quality of education.

Our commitment to ‘inclusion’ ensures that we are a Trust for those of all faiths and none. We are dedicated to ensuring that all learners regardless of faith, background and disability can achieve their full potential.
Our commitment to ‘difference’ ensures that we respect the uniqueness of each of our schools and celebrate the many differences of the whole LDST community. Schools are supported to maintain their own distinctiveness and to develop a curriculum that is unique to them.

Across LDST we learn, love, and achieve together with Jesus in all that we do, supporting each other, working together, and sharing a vision for an excellent education.
