About Vine Trust

Welcome to the Diocese of Chelmsford Vine Schools Trust, my name is Emma Wigmore and I am proud to be the Chief Executive Officer of the Vine. I hope our website gives you a good picture of our wonderful trust family.

The Vine is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) set up by the Diocese of Chelmsford. We are a family of Church of England primary schools located throughout the Diocese of Chelmsford. Our vision is to serve our local communities by providing excellent education rooted in our Christian values.

We are passionate about school improvement and delivering high quality teaching and learning in all of our schools. We want our children to have the best possible experience as they grow into confident learners with a strong sense of morality and values.  You can see the wonderful work our schools do everyday on their websites which you can access through the links on this website.

On the Vine website you will get a sense of what we offer to the schools within our family and our prospective joiners. If you have any questions, particularly if you are a leader or a governor in a school that may be interested in finding out more about what it means to be a member of the Vine, please do get in touch through the Contact Us page.
