Creation of DAT for Families
Connecting Supporting Entertaining
The DAT for Families programme was created to connect with our school communities and support them. It is based around a series of free events that invite our families into the academies. Events in the launch phase included Family Fun Days, a World Cup Football day and a Christmas Panto.
As part of these events we have been offering free food, food parcels and clothing, fun activities for children and a wide range of advice and guidance services covering areas such as finances, housing and parenting. A list of local organisations that can help local families is available on our DAT for Families web page, which will be updated as we expand this unique initiative.
