"To provide high quality education for all children based on clearly established Christian values and principles."

We work closely and collaboratively with our schools and other partners to ensure that we offer a strong caring ethos and a clear moral purpose. We encourage all our schools to see themselves as part of a family with a shared vision, identity and purpose whilst maintaining their individuality.

We are committed to achieving excellence in education and see it as the right of every child to achieve their full potential and to flourish academically, socially, spiritually and emotionally.

We aim to ensure:

  • High academic standards and improve school performance
  • Raised community aspirations
  • An inclusive and welcoming environment for those of all faiths or of none
  • An open Christian ethos within whose values all can achieve their full potential
  • Inspirational teaching
  • A self-sustaining, learning community that shares best practice
  • A love of learning in all members of the Cidari family

Established in November 2013 Cidari Education is a growing education sponsor and part of the Blackburn Diocese. Through the recruitment of passionate, engaging and inspirational people we are committed to providing high quality education for all children in our academies based on clearly established Christian values and principles.

We see it as the right of every child in our schools to receive the best educational experience possible which develops them academically, socially, spiritually and emotionally.
