  • The Articles of Association for the proposed DEALT MAT are now available on each school's website.  These follow a model set by the Department for Education and have been drawn up by our solicitors and approved by the DFE, the Steering Group and the Diocese.  It is not possible to amend them but our project manager Adrian Smith will be at Tuesday's meeting to clarify any points that parents wish to raise.  Click here for articles.
