Meridian Partnership

Downham Feoffees Primary Academy (DFPA) is proud to be a part of the Meridian Trust. Since joining the trust our results have improved, the academy has seen investment in teaching staff, classroom provision and ICT. Being part of a forward-thinking trust that has children at its heart and recognises that all of its academies has their own unique character and needs is helping DFPA to develop as a leader in various areas of education.

Being part of Meridian means that the leaders in school can concentrate on their jobs of developing teaching and learning to a high level and be fully supported with areas like Finance, ICT, HR, Property Management and Catering.

It also means that we benefit from the wider network of Meridian including the teaching school and local development networks of which we are an influential part.

Meridian has a simple and clear vision: to provide high-quality and dynamic education for everyone, right in the heart of the community.

All Meridian’s academies have common values and core operating systems, which are applied locally and adapted to individual context and needs. They retain their own local governing bodies, known as Academy Councils, identity and individuality – but gain the benefit of the wider expertise and experience across the trust.
