The Catholic Diocesan Supply Service (CDSS) is a partnership between Academics and the Diocese of Leeds. Formed in January 2010, the partnership provides Catholic Schools with teachers and support staff who support and play an important role in the Catholic ethos of our schools.
Our Diocesan schools make a strong contribution to education in Yorkshire and are integral in the mission of the church. Strong partnerships are key and we recognise the value and support of CDSS.
