Welcome to

Batley Multi Academy Trust

The Trust at the heart of the Batley community

An inspirational way to start the day

It was Field Lane's turn to host the Batley Breakfast last week and they did it superbly well! The Fields community space was packed full, and the Batley Buzz was definitely in the air. Members, Trustees, Governors, Trust Central Team colleagues, school leaders and other colleagues from across our Trust family of schools were all treated to a presentation by the Headteacher and then a tour of the school in action. From start to finish the event was simply marvellous.


The Headteacher outlined the school's vision and values and how these align with our Trust vision and values. She also described how Field Lane achieves such tremendous success with all of their young people, regardless of their background or starting point. Field Lane is an exceptional school - each lesson of every day embodies their values, and they have high aspirations for everyone, both staff and young people alike. 


Field Lane not only achieves exceptional outcomes (way above national averages) but they have such wonderful creativity, a really strong focus on wellbeing, caring for and nurturing the whole person; and they are research driven, using evidence-informed practice well in every area of their work.


Visitors saw the school's impressive, handcrafted bespoke library which is a magical space to help promote the love of reading, and we saw the librarians in action delivering books to every class as part of World Book Day activities. The excitement was palpable as each class eagerly received their specially gift wrapped book and carefully unwrapped it to reveal the captivating contents inside. Field Lane is a truly unique and special school. At the end of the tour no one wanted to leave.


Well done to the Field Lane team; a superb school and a wonderful place for children to learn, grow, develop and thrive.
