Caldecote CE Academy joined the Diocese of St Albans Multi Academy Trust (DSAMAT) in July 2017

DSAMAT was founded by the Diocese of St Albans, and is a Trust working with schools across Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.  The DSAMAT community has a strong commitment to a shared mission.

This is underpinned by our shared values:

Enabling all to flourish: Rooted in God’s Love

Hope, nurture, collaboration, equality, respect


Our Trust is governed by a range of bodies. Members have strategic oversight for the work of the Trust, include representatives from the Diocesan Board of Finance and Diocesan Board of Education and reflect the range of skills required to oversee an Academy Trust.  Directors of the Trust are appointed by the Members and are responsible for the day-to-day running of the Trust.  The academies are accountable to the Directors who make strategic decisions impacting them.


Local Governing Boards

Individual academies are governed at a local level either by their own Local Governing Board (LGB).  LGBs have the same level of delegated responsibility from the Directors which is outlined within the Governance Framework and financial delegation.
