Our Church of England Schools

“The Mid-Trent MAT, currently comprising three primary schools: Colwich CE Primary School, St. Andrew’s CE Primary School, Weston and St. Peter’s CE Primary School, Hixon, was established on 1st February 2016. We hope our website gives something of the essence of what we believe is a very special ‘Mid-Trent MAT family’. People are at the heart of the Mid-Trent MAT – pupils, teachers, support staff, middle leaders, head teachers, governors, directors, parents and volunteers – all with a wide range of talents, qualities, beliefs and potential. We seek to provide opportunities for all of our practitioners and stakeholders to share best practice, develop expertise, draw on local, national and international research and form partnerships within and beyond the Trust. We share a determination that every child within the MAT will access an outstanding education; every child will fulfill his / her potential and that we will all work together as learners for life.” Paul Hayward – CEO Mid-Trent Multi Academy Trust

The National Church of England Education Vision - Deeply Christian serving the common good


Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.

Educating for hope and aspiration:  enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.

Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.

Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.

In Mid Trent we are a team of churches and schools building God's inclusive kingdom of unconditional love 


Lord God, we praise you that you are fully in control of all things. I pray you would protect my child. Keep them healthy and help them to thrive. I thank you that you know every hair on their head. You know exactly when they rise and when they fall. Watch over my child in every area of their life and keep them safe I pray, Amen.

Lord God I thank you for the gift of knowledge! I praise you that you provide us with brains to think and question the world around us. I pray you would help my child learn well and flourish. May they discover their unique talents and gifts. Give them a passion for the world around them. Amen

Lord God, I thank you that you made us to be in relationship with others. I pray for my child to know great care and support from those around them. May they be encouraged by friends at school. May they show your love and care to their friendship circle. Amen
