Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust consists of a large number of high-performing academies, and their main aim is to cultivate an environment whereby schools can flourish as successful academies.
Sharon Money, Operations Manager of Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust, spoke to us about how EPM have supported their growth and success.
Expanding a multi-academy trust (MAT) requires strategic planning and careful consideration.
From specialist advice to establishing and growing your MAT we provide schools with peace of mind throughout the entire process.
“Prior to joining EPM, we did not have the capacity nor the expertise to support the number of academies as the MAT grew very quickly in the first two years.”
Saving invaluable time
We want education leaders to focus on delivering high-quality education.
“EPM have freed up staff to get on with supporting the business aspects of the trust and to focus the academies on teaching and learning”.
100% focused on education
We have dedicated our expertise exclusively to the education sector for more than 25 years, and we pride ourselves on our personal relationships, passionate team, and proactive approach.
“We received a personal recommendation from another trust, and were attracted by the coverage and support EPM could offer and their value for money”.
Support when they need it
Dealing with disciplinaries can be a stressful and daunting time for education leaders. Whether it is handling a safeguarding allegation or following a fair appeals process, we support our customers to achieve the right outcome in a timely manner.
“We had to deal with a very sensitive disciplinary and EPM supported us from start to finish by providing documents, supporting with reviews and advising on the investigation report. They were also there in person as well as at the end of the phone, and dealt promptly with the unions and subsequent ACAS mediator.”
EPM in one sentence
“EPM is a professional and responsive organisation who fully understand the world of education, and we could not function efficiently and effectively without their support.”
