Empower Multi Academy Trust


From 1st June 2018, Woodfield Infant School will become part of the Empower Multi-Academy Trust. Woodfield is one of the founder schools of the MAT and very pleased to be part of the organisation.

Empower Trust is a network of unique and diverse church and community academies dedicated to collaborating to ensure the provision of an outstanding education for every child within the Trust. Our mission is to ensure that we give every child the very best education possible – socially, morally and academically. We believe that education needs to be exciting and motivational. Academies within Empower Trust demonstrate the courage to innovate and empower every member of the school community to play their part in developing exciting and imaginative child-centred learning experiences.

A clear vision, ethos and agreed set of values underpins the way all the Trust’s academies collaborate. The Christian character of the Church of England academies within the Trust is maintained through positive links with the Diocese of Lichfield.

Empower Trust celebrates the fact that every school is different – each academy retains its unique ethos and character that reflects and responds to the needs of the local community. Each academy’s Local Governing Body includes elected parental and staff governors as well as governors co-opted locally for their skills and expertise. Working in partnership with the headteacher and Empower Trust staff, the Local Governing Body plays an important role in ensuring children receive a high quality of education by monitoring the quality of teaching and learning, the academy’s curriculum and children’s safeguarding and welfare.

We aim to ensure every parent will want to select our academies as their local school of choice by doing everything possible to support all children to become successful learners and to develop into young people of whom the family, academy and community can be proud.
