The Diverse Academies Learning Partnership (DALP) is a group of academies committed to development and improvement through collaboration and partnership. DALP has now been existence since September 2011. There are two trusts linked by a formal partnership agreement, The Diverse Academies Trust (DAT), a multi academy trust and The National C of E Academy Trust (NCEAT) which is currently a single academy trust.
Our core focus is the achievement and development of each individual student. We believe that this is best achieved through maintaining and developing each academy’s unique identity and individual characteristics. However the sharing of existing good practice and the co-development of new best practice is fundamental to the success of the academies. It is for this reason that we have established a framework of core principles and practice to which all our academies subscribe.
We encourage diversity and recognise that high levels of success cannot be sustained by adopting a ‘one size fits all’ model. To find out more information about the structure, operation and collaboration work of DALP, the trust boards and the individual academies please use the links provided.
