INFORMATION FOR FULL REOPENING - SEPTEMBER 2020
Austrey Church of England Primary School, is part of the Birmingham Diocese Multi Academy Trust or BDMAT for short and we joined them on the 1st September 2019. The contact details are as follows:
Church of England Birmingham,
1 Colmore Row,
Please visit https://bdmatschools.com/ for more information or click on the logo below.
A Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) is a government-funded independent family of schools that provides a very high standard of free education in the community, tailored specifically to the educational needs of local children of all learning abilities including special needs. MATs receive their funding from the Department for Education rather than through a local authority. This means they have much more freedom than other state schools over their finances, the curriculum, length of terms and school days and teachers' pay and conditions. Academies are charitable companies subject to public standards of accountability. They are governed by their own head teachers, senior leadership teams and governing bodies, selected by a charitable trust which oversees the running of the academy. We have a long standing relationship with the diocese and in joining BDMAT this will only help to support the school in all that it does. Our MAT provides support to leaders/governors and staff through training and CPD. Every term the Headteacher attends standards meetings and is accountable to the MAT on all areas of data and standards.
INVITATION TO NEW PARENTS
Are you looking for a happy, caring and healthy school, where your child can develop confidence, individuality and good social skills?
Here at Austrey school we offer a broad, balanced curriculum to allow pupils to develop knowledge and understanding of themselves and the world in which they live, and achieve high individual standards. We seek to inspire each child to be a highly motivated, independent learner, with a high standard of self-discipline and self-worth. We encourage good learning habits, thus developing the whole child to his or her full potential, socially, emotionally and academically, regardless of gender, ability or background.
We have a number of spaces in some year groups so, if you are interested in your child joining us, or would like to find out more, please contact us. We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
