About us

Welcome to the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT). We are a successful, collaborative and enterprising Trust with a proven track record of enabling schools to thrive.

DNEAT provides a safe haven for schools that want to preserve their Christian heritage, ethos and values and maintain their distinctive character.

The Christian vision and values that shape our culture and practice

Our passion and ambition is to see children in all our schools achieve excellent educational outcomes alongside developing and growing into their potential as individuals made in the image of God.  Our culture is one of high aspiration rooted in our Christian values as demonstrated in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.  This shapes out ethos and culture whereby all working or volunteering within our academy trust should ‘walk and talk’ our Christian vision and values.  A desire to see all truly flourish and to be inclusive organisations, welcoming those of all faiths and none, is at the heart of our approach.

Our Trust vision is based upon Proverbs 24: 3 – 24: 4 (ESV); By wisdom a house is built; and by understanding it is established:By knowledge the rooms are filledwith all precious and pleasant riches​.  We try to live all Christian values but have selected kindness, courage, community and wisdom as the key ones for our Trust. These are our guiding stars on our journey.

Our academies are large and small, rural and urban, and join us at different stages of their journey. We support them all.

We have developed support services that really work so our academies can focus on providing learning environments where all children and young people can flourish and succeed, whatever their background or beliefs.
