Derby Diocesan Academy Trust (DDAT)

As of 1st January 2019, St Chad's became part of the Derby Diocesan Academy Trust (DDAT) family of schools.

The values and ethos that DDAT is built upon are Christian in nature and represent values and principles that are important to people of all faiths and no faith. There is a focus on individuality, collaboration and unity; there is a real sense of belonging within DDAT. This is well-balanced with a sense of autonomy and empowerment enabling schools to flourish as separate and unique entities.

Derby Diocesan Academy Trust (DDAT) was formed in response to the national Academy and Free School Programme and provides a Diocesan home to schools (Church or non-Church) either choosing or requiring an academy solution. DDAT strives to help ensure the sustainability of highly valued church schools, even in the unfortunate circumstances that a school is required to move away from being maintained by the local authority in order to secure rapid school improvement. DDAT is increasingly assisting non-faith-based schools as they plan to sustain improvements by joining the growing number of schools within the DDAT family.
