Richmond are part of SECAT (Southend East Community Academy Trust)

The MAT is made up of five primary schools and one secondary school, all based in the Shoeburyness area. 

SECAT has its own Board of Trustees and each school has its own Local Governing Body (Academy Committee) which is accountable to the Trust Board.

SECATs  Vision is to become the most outstanding Educational partnership nationally.

“Building strong schools, building strong partnerships, building strong communities

We are a community of schools working in partnership, sharing resources and ideas to provide a rounded and inclusive education to our pupils who range from the age of 3 through to 18.

We work towards enhancing the life chances and prosperity of our pupils and to equip them for adult life. Whilst keeping each school’s individual character, we encourage our staff to share best practice and knowledge to further benefit our pupils.  

We are passionate about educating and encouraging our pupils to become active, successful citizens and to have the confidence to meet any challenge they face.


All SECAT schools have worked together to plan and create a MAT-wide entitlement document that clearly shows what pupil's can receive when they attend any SECAT school. This document can be read by clocking on the links at the bottom of the page. 

Staff Wellbeing 

We believe that everyone working within SECAT should have the opportunity to enjoy the highest standard of wellbeing and mental health. In line with the DfE Staff Wellbeing Charter, SECAT recognise that everyone has a role to play in creating an environment free from mental health discrimination, guided by emotional intelligence and characterised by supportive, nurturing cultures.

The charter can be read below
