Strategic Plan

Home > Education

The development of a five year Strategic School Organisation Plan (SSOP) is designed to respond creatively and flexibly to four influences.


  • The values and traditions of a 200 year heritage of the church in a field of education;
  • the aims and expectations of central and regional government;
  • the DBE as an accredited academy sponsor; and
  • the pragmatic needs of our diocesan schools and academies including the Diocese of Coventry Multi Academy Trust (DMAT).


In addition to the Strategic School Organisation Plan materials, from this page you can also access the Church of England Education Office recently published Vision for Education - '... a fresh articulation of the Church of England’s vision for education as we meet the challenges and take the opportunities offered by the present situation.'

Two other publications from the Church of England Education Office are a Small Schools Planning Tool and a document outlining the benefits of joining a MAT if you are a good or outstanding school.

Please find links to the documents on the righthand side.
