Our Trust

Ethos and Mission Statement

As educators, it is our responsibility to ensure that all children, regardless of, but pertinent to the school that they attend, enjoy and excel. Through school sponsorship we aim to ascertain that the potential of all children is realised and that this is achieved alongside nurturing a life-long love of learning. As a sponsor MAT, it is essential that we are motivated to help facilitate and swiftly achieve changes that will lead to enriched opportunities for our young people, whatever their start point.


We strongly believe that, by working in partnership, we can utilise the strengths of all schools in the alliance, to inspire children and push the boundaries of what is possible. Our aim is simple: that all teaching inspires learning and fosters enjoyment and success in its many forms.  


The starting point for learning in St Bartholomew’s CE MAT is a positive, child-centred ethos and climate of respect and trust based upon shared values across the school community. Our distinctive Christian nature permeates all aspects of school life and our core values of love, care and forgiveness are at the heart of school life and learning. This shared set of values allows us to remain child-centred and standards driven, modelling behaviour which promotes effective learning and wellbeing within the local community.


Through a thorough analysis of all available evidence, we aim to provide interventions and CPD wherever necessary to guarantee that all children are reaching their emotional and academic potential. Excellent teaching and learning starts in the classroom, with driven, enthused and knowledgeable practitioners, thus leading to inspired and motivated children.
