The Hope Learning Trust has strong connections with the Diocese of York, in particular the Diocese of York Educational Trust (DYET).
DYET’s aim is to fulfil for the students in its academies the Church of England’s vision for education. It takes as its starting point the words of Jesus, who said that he came so that people may have ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10.10). DYET is committed to seeing its students grow and reach their potential intellectually, emotionally, physically, spiritually, morally and socially. Whilst DYET is clear about this vision being a practical outworking of the Christian faith for 21st century Britain, it is not in any sense narrow or exclusive.
The national policy statement from the Church of England puts it like this:
The vision, in line with the Church of England’s role as the established Church, is for the common good of the whole human community and its environment, whether national, regional or local. It is hospitable to diversity, respects freedom of religion and belief, and encourages others to contribute from the depths of their own traditions and understandings. It invites collaboration, alliances, negotiation of differences, and the forming of new settlements in order to serve the flourishing of a healthily plural society and democracy, together with a healthily plural educational system.
DYET is glad to work in partnership with Church, Co-operative Trust and Community schools, and with educational bodies of all designations, with which it can share an inclusive and open approach to the development and flourishing of young people and the communities to which they belong.
DYET is currently in partnership with:
