Early Years Provision: Ermine Street Church Academy


The Diocese of Ely Multi Academy Trust wishes to invite Tenders for the supply of services in respect of an Early Years Provision, at the new Ermine Street Church Academy at Alconbury Weald. The successful Potential Provider will be responsible for providing this service in partnership with the school’s leadership team and liaising closely with the Contract Manager.


Ermine Street Church Academy is opening as part of the Diocese of Ely Multi Academy Trust (DEMAT). It will be the first school on the Alconbury Weald development. The DEMAT and Ermine Street are committed to providing high quality childcare as part of the school’s provision for the community.


It is widely acknowledged that children who experience high quality early years provision are provided with the foundations necessary for achieving positive outcomes for life.
Furthermore, DEMAT’s vision and ethos is founded on providing a nurturing and supportive environment for learning.  We are committed to meeting the needs of all children and families, making no distinction between background, faith or culture. We defy the link between background and attainment.


Ermine Street Church Academy is the first primary school on the Alconbury Weald development. The first phase of the development will see 890 homes built over the next 5-7 years, along with the development of 700,000 sq ft of commercial space for businesses in the adjacent Enterprise Zone.


The developers and School are working together closely to develop a flexible and innovative approach to early years and childcare which would offer a comprehensive service of 0-5 childcare and early years provision. This would be provided in the new school building – images of which are shown in the Appendices and on one accompanying document.


The Authority forecasts that Primary School Academy catchment area identifies that 30 funded 2, 3 & 4 year old early years places will be required for the academic year 2016-17 to meet the demand. The successful bidder will be expected to prioritise funded childcare places.
