Samuel Barlow Primary Academy is proud to be part of the Diverse Academies Learning Partnership, alongside a number of other Academies within Nottinghamshire.


Diverse Academies Learning Partnership (DALP)
DALP is a group of Academies committed to development and improvement through collaboration and partnership. DALP has now been existence since September 2011. There are two trusts linked by a formal partnership agreement, The Diverse Academies Trust (DAT), a Multi-Academy Trust and The National Church of England Academy Trust (NCEAT) which is currently a single Academy Trust.

The Partnership’s core focus is the achievement and development of each individual student. This is achieved through maintaining and developing each Academy’s unique identity and individual characteristics, sharing existing best practice and co-developing new best practice techniques.

DAT is a Multi-Academy Trust of fourteen Academies (Queen Elizabeth’s Academy, National Academy, Tuxford Academy, East Leake Academy, The Holgate Academy, Retford Oaks Academy, Walton Girls’ High School, Wainwright Primary Academy, Tuxford Primary Academy, Thrumpton Primary, Bracken Lane Primary, Redgate Adacemy, Yeoman Park Academy and Samuel Barlow Priary).

The trust board works closely with the Diverse Academies Learning Partnership (DALP) board. They are empowered by the Trust to provide overall support to Academies through their leadership and management alongside governance structures within DALP.
