Trust Trustees have a strategic role and delegate all but the key decisions to individual Local Governing Body (LGB) who are accountable to the Trustees. The Trustees are accountable to the ESFA and DfE.
The Trustees, meeting at least each school half term, delegate decision making and responsibility for tasks to individual LGBs via Terms of Reference.
The Trustees are required under the rules of the ESFA Financial Handbook to receive assurances from each school that controls are operating effectively and that risks are being managed.
