BDAT Mission Statement

BDAT’s mission is: ‘’to provide high quality education within the context of Christian belief and practice so that every child can fulfil their academic potential and accomplish their individual goals”.

Our rationale or reason for doing this is: “…. because we believe that every child has only one chance at a good education”.

Our vision is: “That every student in a BDAT academy gets a happy and high quality education enabling competence, confidence and character to thrive; and that our Academies become the schools of choice in Bradford.’

The Trust, our family of schools and our pupils are driven by a set of shared values which guide how we operate, how we teach and how we support each other.

Our values are:

Aspiration. We set high expectation for ourselves, our children and our staff so that each of us is supported to achieve our own potential. We expect nothing but the best from ourselves and from others.

Inclusion.  We understand everyone is equal, without exception. We value and encourage diversity and difference. We proactively seek to learn from others.

Excellence.  We provide rigorous support and challenge to our schools and our students. We strive for excellence in all we do.

Compassion.  We care for each other. We respect each other and treat our friends and colleagues how they would expect to be treated. We make sure we are safe, feel loved and are actively supported at all times.

Resilience.  We are ambitious and reflective. We are determined and brave in making decisions and when facing challenges.  We expect our schools to provide us with the skills and knowledge to guide us through our future as life long learners.

We will do this by:

  • Taking the time to get to know and care for each of our students whilst supporting them in their social, moral and educational development.
  • Supporting every family to develop the unique character of their child.
  • Ensuring each of our schools is a safe haven for our students, so that they may grow into confident and effective learners with high aspirations for success.
  • Ensuring we deliver only the very best teaching, guidance and support at all times.
  • Ensuring our staff and teachers are provided are supported to do their job safely and to the best of their ability, so we can act as role models in all we do.
