St Benet’s Multi- Academy Trust

Alburgh and Denton C of E Primary Academy is a proud member of St Benet’s Multi-Academy Trust. Our school joined St Benet’s Multi-Academy Trust in June 2022. We believe, belonging to St Benet’s strengthens our opportunities.  It provides a supportive and appropriately-challenging environment for school leaders and governors to achieve the very best for our school.

About St Benet’s Multi-Academy Trust:

Diocese of Norwich schools and academies are open to families of any religion, and of none, and are there to serve their local community.  Although our values are deeply-rooted within the Christian faith, our approach is very much one of inclusivity; our schools are open to all and accepting of all, regardless of faith.  The education offered by schools within the Diocesan family is guided by Christian values, but it is not a religious education – it encourages dignity, respect and living well together.

Our Academies provide education for children and young people in Norfolk and the Waveney Valley. Some are very small and rural; others are much larger and in market towns. Each has their own distinctive character but all operate within the Christian ethos and values of the Diocese of Norwich and St Benet’s Multi Academy Trust and benefit from the support and development opportunities the Trust Provides.

St Benet’s is a growing and developing Multi Academy Trust. Our collaborative, peer to peer approach to support brings many benefits to our schools and our staff. We recognise best practice, celebrate successes, and harness and share the expertise within our community.

With extensive professional development opportunities on offer for all St Benet’s staff we have an experienced, high-quality workforce, confident of their career development within the Trust.
