Our Mission

The Arden Forest MAT is a community of schools with a Christian ethos where we strive to give all of our children the hope and aspiration to achieve their full personal and academic potential.

Our ambition is to continuously improve our schools and the education we offer our children.

We are committed to promoting strong collaboration across the family of schools. Staff work collaboratively across the MAT and this approach allows us to share expertise, resources and best practice.

All schools have similar approaches to the curriculum with a commitment to developing the ‘whole’ child, not just being academically focused.

By being part of our MAT, all schools will be working together, enabling us to secure the best possible outcomes for our children and staff.

Our Vision

Governors and Trustees are committed to maintaining the Christian distinctiveness of our schools and have agreed our vision to be

‘Inspiring educational excellence for all’

Our Values

We will live out our vision through our four core values;

As a family of schools we will work together for the benefit of all our children; celebrating both the similarities and differences of each school’s individual ethos.

In our family of schools, we are committed to the dignity, value and well-being of each individual. We are tolerant and inclusive, we appreciate difference and need for change. We acknowledge the views of all members of the community through our Christian virtues.

Inspiration breathes life into our schools. In our schools children will experience a creative and engaging curriculum full of opportunities for them to flourish. Our staff will be encouraged to develop and grow through excellent professional development.

We believe in educating and caring for the whole child, not just academic excellence but physical and emotional growth united with spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. When making decisions, we put the needs of our children first ensuring that they and their families are valued and supported holistically.
