Our Trustees are responsible for the strategic vision of the schools and for supporting the Senior Leadership Teams and staff in achieving that vision. Trustees have responsibility for appointing Heads and managing the schools’ budgets, setting annual targets and monitoring performance against those targets, all in the interest of raising standards of achievement.
Each school in the Trust has a ‘Link Trustee’ that visits the school regularly to discuss issues with staff and senior leaders, attends school events and represents the Trust at school ‘Progress Boards’.
Our school’s link Trustee is Neil Park
We have one committee within our Trust called Standards, Resources, Audit and Risk. This committee meets every four to five weeks and reports back to the full Trust Board on all business, including safeguarding. The full Trust Board meet twice a term. Trustees visit the school regularly, attending events and meeting with school staff in order to support the CEO in effectively monitoring the quality of education.
A Declaration of Pecuniary or Personal Interests is signed annually by every Trustee. In every committee and full Trust Board meeting there is a standing agenda item for any changes or new interests to be declared.
