The Board of Directors/Trustees is the legal entity with which ‘the outside world’ transacts with the Trust. It is the employer of all the staff. All HR policy is set at trust board level after consultation with the unions. It is the body that is accountable for the standard of the education provided by all its schools, and for the financial performance of the trust as a whole. The board is the governing body for all the divisions of the trust, i.e. its schools/academies, its central office, its ITT arm, TS Hub and it is the admissions authority.
We operate with the support of a system of committees, to which it delegates significant responsibility. These committees include local governance committees for schools. The majority of local governance is appointed directly by the Trust Board.
What is the Trust’s ambition for its children and young people and what is the role of local governance in this ambition?
The Trust’s motto is “Ambition, Excellence, Community”. Our ambition is that all our children and young people are prepared for life and nurtured to become people we are proud to know – good neighbours, citizens, friends, whose light shines. We are proud of all our schools and actively seek to maintain and develop individual school identity. Collectively, we share and co-develop best practice for the benefit of all our schools as part of our mission to deliver excellence through partnership and collaboration, excellent teaching and learning for all, exceptional care and guidance and outstanding performance.
Key functions of the local committees are:
