The Diocese of Hereford has been actively engaged in education for over 500 years. The first church schools in the diocese were established in the 16th Century and at one time most of the parishes in the diocese had some form of church school. This was largely through the efforts of the National Society and the rapid expansion of the church’s involvement in education during the 19th century.

There has been increased focus nationally on schools converting to academies and the Diocese created a Multi-Academy Trust in 2013 as the educational landscape was changing fast. The Bishop Anthony Education Trust is determined to provide outstanding support for teaching and education as well as the provision of first-class administrative and financial support.

Values

Educating for Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills

Good schools foster confidence, delight and offer structure in seeking wisdom, knowledge, truth, understanding, know-how, and the skills needed to shape life well. They nurture academic habits and skills, emotional intelligence and creativity across the whole range of school subjects and what one needs to understand and practise in order to be a good person, citizen, parent, employee, team or group member, or leader.

Educating for Hope and Aspiration

Good schools open up horizons of hope and aspiration, and guide pupils into ways of fulfilling them. They also cope wisely when challenges are presented.

Educating for Community and Living Well Together

Whatever our circumstances we are each called to responsibility towards others and to contribute responsibly to our communities and so education needs to have a core focus on relationships and commitments, participation in communities and institutions, and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.

Educating for Dignity and Respect

Human dignity, the ultimate worth of each person, is central to good education. The basic principle of respect for the value of each person involves continual discernment, deliberation and action, and schools are one of the main places where this happens, and where the understanding and practices it requires are learned.

BAET Vision

Delivering outstanding education within an inclusive Christian context.

Aims

  • To ensure that our academies are centres of excellence with a focus on the nurture and achievement of all their members

  • To foster, maintain and celebrate the Christian distinctiveness of our Church Schools as places for those of faith or no faith

  • To promote mutual support, encouragement and benefit between all our academies

  • To develop, as the foundation stone of academic achievement, a strong culture of professional development amongst our staff
  • To recognise and address the challenges of small rural communities

  • To celebrate and maintain the unique identity of each school within its community and within the family of academies

  • To recognise and enable those who often remain invisible, through ethnic or cultural disadvantage, or through disability or poverty

 

Objectives

The vision of the Diocesan Board of Education (DBE) is to create a family of Academies, which will interact and co-operate with each other in a relationship that will mean the bringing academies into such a grouping we can ensure that support can be given from one setting to another, with good practice extended and exchanged. We will seek to maintain the Christian characteristics and distinctiveness of each setting, as this is an essential compliance for continued use of the buildings and facilities as outlined in each individual Trust Deed. We will develop excellence in all aspects of the work of our academies, not only in terms of academic achievement and performance, but also in organisational and financial management, student support and development and community engagement.

Busy Last Week Ahead!

As we enter our last week before the summer holidays, we have lots going on including our lovely head, Mrs Swann, saying goodbye to us!  Here are some of the events:

  • Monday sees children meeting their new teachers and classmates in the afternoon.
  • Tuesday is our sponsored fun run in aid of Cancer Research where children are asked to come wearing in pink or blue clothes suitable for running.  Later that morning, Sports Awards will be presented.
  • Reading treats will be taking place for different year groups throughout the week
  • Year 6 continue to rehearse for their leavers' assembly which will be presented to parents and carers at 10am on Friday, 21st July in the hall (there will be a DVD of the performance to order).  Some of our year sixes will also be representing the school at the regional atheletics final on Thursday.
  • We are having a whole school picnic on Thursday at lunchtime to celebrate our time with Mrs Swann - don't forget packed lunches!
  • There is a special lunch on Friday, chosen by the year sixes, on their last day of primary school.

There's lots more going on besides so do keep an eye on Dojo for messages from individual teachers and for information on whole school activities.
