Our Trust





Welcome from the Trust

We are the Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust, a successful multi-academy trust for primary schools in the Bristol area.  We bring expertise and resources that will make sure that every child at Easton CE Academy is working to the very best of his or her ability.  We will expect Easton CE Academy to deliver a solid all-round education for those children that attend.

It is important to us that all of our Academies are set in a Christian context but that children and families of all faiths and none are equally welcome.

Our aim is to develop pupils who are confident, happy and ready to learn. We will ensure they are equipped with competence in basic skills to prepare them for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

We know that every parent wants the best for their child, not just at school, but throughout their life. We believe that if we can improve our children’s education then we can really boost their life chances later on, starting with the transition to secondary school.

We will make sure that improvements are made and made quickly and that everyone in the Academy knows that they will be tirelessly supported to strive for their goals to help make the Academy a local outstanding school.

We look forward to welcoming you to Easton CE Academy.

About DBAT

The Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust (DBAT) was founded in 2012, enabling the Diocese of Bristol’s Board of Education to sponsor academies. It currently sponsors 11 primary academies and 1 secondary academy.

At the Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust, our academies work together in the same way that a family works together, sharing good ideas and resources with everyone’s best interest at heart. Everyone on our team – including staff, teachers and governors – makes sure every child knows that they will be supported and challenged to achieve their very best. We will work quickly to get results and we won’t waste time – we know that children only get one chance at their education and we are committed to making every lesson count. Our goal is to make the academy ‘Outstanding’ as soon as possible.

We believe in offering a Christian education which is accessible to children of all faiths and none.  Our pupils and staff should have the very best in their teaching, learning, leadership, management and safety.  All our academies and schools share experiences and skills to make sure that everyone learns from each other constantly and that pupils and staff all benefit from each other and we look forward to including Easton in our family.

DBAT’s core purposes are to:

  • Focus on improving the educational experiences, employment prospects and life chances of young people, especially those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds.
  • Demonstrate that children’s life-chances are improved when their formal education is within the context of an academy that is founded in the Christian tradition, establishes an ethos that is distinctively Christian and embraces the very best practices in teaching, learning, leadership, management and safety.
  • Accelerate students’ levels of attainment and achievement, and raises student, teacher and parental aspirations and ambitions.
  • Help to create more cohesive communities enhancing opportunities for social mobility by striving to eliminate the attainment gap between students from disadvantaged backgrounds and young people who by circumstances of birth and inheritance take for granted their automatic right to a good education.
  • Transform the overall performance of underperforming schools in deprived areas, helping to improve and innovate in all aspects of teaching, learning and leadership and promoting the development of future leaders.
