The Dales mission is “To be a Multi Academy Trust for North Yorkshire and the north of the Dioceses of York and Leeds, determined to deliver the very highest quality of education through collaboration, shared best practice and underpinned by our Christian ethos and values.

The values that underpin this Mission statement are: 

      • Excellence
      • Community
      • Integrity 
      • Trust 
      • Compassion 
      • Opportunity 
      • Wisdom 
      • Mutual Respect

The Trust is open to church and non-church schools with a core purpose of providing an inclusive education for children of any ability, culture, gender, sexuality, faith or no faith. The Trust ethos is derived from, and informed by, the Church of England’s commitment to education and schooling over more than 200 years; the Trust closely adheres to the Church of England’s policy of ‘church schools for all’ rather than ‘faith schools for some’.
