Board of Education
Promoting Christian distinctiveness through excellent education in the Diocese of Rochester

Strategic Intent

The RDBE has agreed the following strategic intentions to guide the development of the work of the Board for the period 2015 to 2017
  • To embrace opportunities for new Church school provision in order that the amount of Anglican places remains proportionate and in line with community places across all four local authorities
  • To build the capacity across the DBE and the Education Team to be able to respond to an increase in number of primary academies and free school proposals using Church School-led Multi-Academy Trust (MATs) or a Local Collaborative Trust (LCT) models
  • To actively promote and develop the number of Church school partnerships, collaborations and federations including increasing the number of community schools affiliated to the Diocesan Family of Schools
  • To find and form strategic partnerships with companies and organisations who have the capacity and appropriate values to support our Church schools and academies
  • To build a national and regional reputation for excellence in the area of best practice for diocesan Children and Youth Work; to develop and facilitate the sharing of good practice in this area
