Ermine Street Church Academy is sponsored by DEMAT but this is in partnership with the Methodist Family of Schools.

In the Methodist Family of Schools there are 81 schools. 65 are maintained primary schools, 26 of which are ‘Methodist only’ schools, the others are partnership schools with the Church of England. 

Methodist Schools are inclusive and unpretentious communities where individuals are valued, good order is respected, relationships cherished, and where excellence in its widest sense (academic, extra-curricular, lifestyle) is pursued for children of all faiths and none. 

Methodist Schools encourage a sense of belonging, seek to improve lives and boldly expect the impossible.  In Methodist Schools educational experiences and activities bring mind and heart, intellect and passion together.  Methodist Schools work in mutually beneficial partnerships with each other and the wider Methodist Church.
