About the Trust

You can view our Ofsted reports here.

The WDAT is a primary Multi-Academy Trust based in Dover, Kent, comprising of Vale View Primary School, Priory Fields School and St Martin’s School. Our journey began on 1st August 2016 when the schools of Priory Fields and St Martin’s decided that working together would improve outcomes for children within our local community. We were delighted when approached by the governing body of Vale View to join our MAT, who successfully joined on 1st January 2018. Collaborative working is integral in our day-to-day working and the Headteachers work closely on all aspects of school improvement and staff development. 

This is extended throughout all staffing groups across our MAT, which ensures teaching is good and continually improving, provides a curriculum that excites, enthuses and engages all learners and offers mutual support by sharing, working together and engaging in professional dialogue. 

Our three schools are within 5-10 minutes walk from one another which is extremely beneficial for collaborative working. Although our three schools are within walking distance of each other, they each have their own unique character, values and ethos, which we encourage and celebrate.
