Discovery MAT

Our Vision and Values


Discovery Multi Academy Trust is the result of an amalgamation of three primary schools from across the Plymouth area: Oakwood Primary Academy and Beechwood Primary Academy (formerly of the Southernway Federation) and Weston Mill Community Primary Academy. The Trust was formed in September 2016.



We will ensure that all children are able to thrive through quality learning experiences, ensuring their readiness for the next stage in their learning.


To achieve our vision we will:

  • Encourage all our children and staff to excel and collaborate with one another, to ensure the best outcomes and progress for all.
  • Develop joyful learning communities that work together to improve standards and outcomes for our children, as part of a wider community.
  • Ensure that we remain committed to the following values that underpin the way we work:
