Governance

Overview

The members of the Trust were the original signatories to the memorandum of association and agreed the Trust’s first Articles of Association. The members appoint trustees to ensure that the Trust’s charitable object is carried out. Members are also responsible for approving any amendments made to the Trust’s Articles of Association. Furthermore, only the members can authorise a decision to admit a new school to the Trust, to change the name of the Trust or to alter the principles in The TRUE Learning Partnership Charter, by passing a special resolution which requires a 75% majority. 


The trustees are company directors and ‘charity trustees’ (within the terms of section 177(1) of the Charities Act 2011) and are responsible for the general control and management of the administration of the Trust in accordance with the provisions set out in the Articles of Association and the terms of the Trust’s Funding Agreement with the Department for Education.


The TRUE Learning Partnership Trust Board delegates responsibility for implementation of the vision and strategy to the Trust Leader (CEO) (and statutory ‘Accounting Officer’ responsible to the Department for Education and to Parliament for the proper use of public money). The Trust Board will hold the Trust Leader to account for the performance of the Trust, including the performance of individual schools within the Trust.


The Trust Board will ensure that each school has its own Local Governing Body, whose role is to exercise leadership on behalf of the Trust in the running of the individual school and to provide information to the Trust Board on its operation and performance; as well as monitor the application of the Trust’s vision and values at a local level. Full details of roles and responsibilities can be found in the Scheme of Delegation.
