Multi Academy Trusts exist to “establish, maintain, carry on, manage and develop schools offering a broad and balanced curriculum”. (Extract from Articles of Association, DfE). Getting the right balance of service activity (and funding) between the Trust and each constituent academy is critical to achieving the three objectives of effectiveness, efficiency, and sustainability. We understand that the structure of our Trust should be fit for the purpose of achieving the key deliverables set out in our own and in the academies’ annual development plans.
We will enable our Trust’s development by:
- Ensuring high quality and cost-effective services and support to academies
- Keeping the service provision and organisational structure of the Trust under review
- Designing a strong financial plan that delivers on effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability.
