Trust Stakeholder Letter

Dear Parents, Carers, Students, Staff and Trustees

I am writing this Multi Academy Trust update to keep all of our stakeholders informed about the work that the Trust is doing and the impact it is having in our schools. It has been a very exciting and busy academic year for us and we have lots to celebrate and be proud of. The Trust has grown substantially this year with the sponsorship of Treviglas Academy on 1 January 2019. We now consist of two primary and two secondary schools, which allows the best working relationships in developing teaching and learning, curriculum’s and students and staff working across phases and schools.

Update – School Funding Issues     

Dear Parent / Carer

 Update – School Funding Issues                                                                              

 I wanted to contact you to provide an update on current issues relating to school funding.  

Sadly, I have to confirm that despite intense lobbying of the Government and Department for Education, matters remain extremely challenging.  In short, schools are still not being provided with adequate funding and resource to deliver the level of provision and support that is expected and that our families and children deserve.

Parent Trustee

The role of a Parent Trustee Parent Trustees are elected by other parents within the Multi Academy Trust (MAT). Any parent, or carer, of a registered pupil at any of the four schools at the time of election is eligible to stand for election as a parent trustee. Parent trustees may continue to hold office until the end of their term of office (4 years) even if their child leaves the school during this time. Schools must make every reasonable effort to fill parent trustee vacancies through elections, however the MAT’s Articles of Association, do make provision for parent trustees to be appointed where the number of parents standing for election is less than the number of vacancies.

As a parent trustee you hold the unique position of having a parental viewpoint. Through the children you will have firsthand experience of the curriculum and how the school is perceived from the parental point of view. You will be able to bring this perspective to the strategic management of the schools. As a parent trustee you must not vote in a particular way because you have been pressed to do so by parents. Objectivity is essential. You are not there to promote the interests of your own children specifically or to be a spokesperson for other parents’ views. You are representative of the parent body, not a representative for them.
