Trust consultation 8th July 2016

Dear Parents

The consultation period for the proposed Multi Academy Trust draws to a close on July 15th. If you have not responded and would like to express your views, please do email the Trust administrator Kteague@parc-eglos.cornwall.sch stating the school you are associated with, or Pat Nicholas

Karen will be collating the responses and forwarding them to governing bodies for their consideration as part of the consultation process. The slides used in the consultation meetings are available on school websites. Please note these have been updated to provide further information asked for in the first of the consultation meetings.

The responses we have received so far, both in the various meetings and by email, are helping to shape the proposed model further. In the light of feedback received in the consultation meetings, the governor/head teacher working party is revisiting the proposed governance structure and scheme of delegation to try to achieve a flatter structure with less tiers whilst maintaining local representation at the trustee committee level. The recommendations will then be considered by governing bodies. Early next term, the draft Scheme of Delegation and the draft Articles of Association documents will be made available to you on school websites. (These documents provide a legal framework for the proposed Multi-Academy Trust and explain who will be responsible for what.) There will then be a further period of consultation in September. A summary of the views expressed and the governors’ consideration of these will be published at the close of the consultation period.
