The Diocese of Ely is part of the Church of England and the wider Anglican Communion.
The Diocese of Ely Board of Education supports the teaching of children throughout the Diocese particularly through our Church of England Schools. These schools are seen as part of our Christian mission to educate children in an environment that reflects our Christian values and in the communities we serve.
In particular, the Board is committed to:
· ensuring that all pupils, regardless of ability, gender, religion, and background have access to a high quality education within a supportive learning environment, which equips them well as independent learners to take their place in society and to contribute to it.
· setting high expectations of leadership and of teaching and learning.
As part of this the Board has established the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust (DEMAT) to oversee the development of Church of England academies within the Diocese. Through this Trust, the Diocese aims to take more responsibility for the running of these academies as Church of England schools and to foster co-operation between the academies.
Here at St. Mary's we are proud to be a part of this multi-academy trust.
