Christian Ethos and Values

Within our caring Christian community, we provide a safe, inspiring environment where a lifelong love of learning is nurtured, and children are given the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Our Academy motto ‘together growing in learning, knowledge, life skills and love’ is underpinned by the verse from John 13v 34-35 “Love one another as I have loved you”. These support the overall DCAT Academy vision, “helping every child achieve their God-given potential”. We feel a deep responsibility to nurture happy, responsible and confident young people of faith and values.

As a church Academy, we provide a Christian ethos that infuses the wider Academy community. Our teaching and reflection times focus on developing a strong culture of care, respect and empathy for one another within a distinctively Christian environment.

The strong links with the Diocese and church contributes to the spiritual life of the school and provides a resource for religious education. Church representation on the Governing body ensures the school develops an ethos in accordance with its original foundation.
