Central Services

To deliver the Trust’s vision we have developed a central support team that works across all our academies to:

  • Ensure Trust compliance
  • Provide support and expertise
  • Provide information and guidance
  • Ensure a consistency of approach where appropriate
  • Allow our academies to benefit from economies of scale

The Central Services Team has now developed its capacity to ensure that crucial aspects in running a school are covered including:

  • Financial services
  • Estate and premises management
  • Health and safety support
  • HR management and administration
  • ICT and data
  • Safeguarding
  • Compliance
  • School improvement

It is the aim of the Trust to provide an impactful central team and a coherent system to support educational outcomes. The increased capacity of the Central Service Team allows academy leadership to focus on the single, most important thing that it does – to continually improve the quality of teaching in every classroom, ensuring that the young people in our care get the best possible opportunity in life.
