Trustees

Our role, as Trustees

Is to ensure that the high expectations and standards of our Academies are maintained.  We achieve this by acting as a “critical friend” and providing appropriate challenge and support to the Principals, Associate Principals and their staff.   We are responsible for overseeing leadership, setting targets for school improvement, monitoring progress and improved outcomes for pupils, assisting in the development of strategy, setting and agreeing budgets and priorities for spending, providing a safe and secure environment in which pupils can flourish and ensuring current legislation is embedded in our day to day activities.

The full Board of Trustees meets at least termly, as do the Audit & Risk Management, Finance & Resources, Remuneration & Nominations, Education Strategy & Standards  and Health & Safety Committees.  All Trustees undergo a DBS check on appointment and receive training throughout their term of office to enable them to undertake their roles effectively.

A full list of Trustees is shown below.

I hope enjoy your journey through our website and if you wish to learn more about our work please contact Sherri Hawkins, Company Secretary.

Yours sincerely,

Pat Marchiori, RSADipTefla
