To unlock every child’s potential as a unique child of God

Our curriculum offer

Each school has its own individual broad and balanced, rich and varied curriculum which is adapted to meet the needs of the actual pupils in each school. 


Religious Education


In Church of England schools, where pupils and staff come from all faiths and none, Religious Education (RE) is a highly valued academic subject that enables understanding of how religion and belief affect our lives.

The Trust is linked to the Chelmsford Diocese.  The Chelmsford Diocesan Board of Education (CBDE) believes that RE enables pupils to develop religious literacy the ability to hold informed and balanced conversations about religion and beliefs.


The Church of England Statement of Entitlement for Religious Education 2019 document outlines the expectations of the Church of England Education Office in relation to Religious Education. It is used by SIAMS (Section 48) inspectors when they are assessing the quality of RE in church schools and academies.
