Governance and Scheme of Delegation
The Generations Multi Academy Trust is a company limited by guarantee and a charitable trust. Responsibility for the academies that make up the Trust and for the funds granted by Parliament for providing education in those academies is entrusted to the Board of Trustees.
These Trustees are also the Directors of the company. Much of the work of the Board is delegated to committees; in particular there is a separate committee for each of the academies which works as a Local Academy Board (LAB).
The other Board sub-committees are:
- Search Committee
Local Academy Boards debate key matters at school level and pass their recommendations up to the Board, via each committee, for discussion and ratification.
The Trust provides strategic oversight of financial control and strategy through the Chief Financial Officer, the Resources and the main Trust Board. The Trust’s finances are externally audited on an annual basis.
The role of the Trustees is to provide a strategic view of all academies in the Trust, to ensure accountability and to be a critical friend. The Trustees are responsible for the overall direction of the Trust. Trustees also set and monitor targets, the Trust and school budgets, and the effectiveness of policies, to ensure all students have a broad and balanced curriculum.
The Board of Trustees is not responsible for day to day matters within school, which are the responsibility of the Principal.
The Chair of the Trustees is Andrew Clarke and can be contacted via:
