Connected organisations, including related party relationships
The Academy Trust is under the Trusteeship of the Diocese of Nottingham. The Trust is instructed by the Diocese to follow the CES polices. Each Academy within the Trust pays an Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the Diocese for support and training on educational matters.
Objectives and activities
Objects and aims
As a Trust the individual Academies agree to maintain unity and explore together the options available to secure the future of Catholic Schools in Northern Lincolnshire. All this is carried out whilst jointly pursuing the principal activities mentioned at the outset.
Objectives, strategies and activities
At the Trust meetings as evidenced by the minutes, joint policies, projects, procurement and C.P.D are considered and acted upon as appropriate.
- Joint projects have allowed the academies to negotiate costs with providers at a benefit to each individual academy
- Joint C.P.D. has enabled training at cost effective price
- The sharing of good practice has enabled individual schools to continue to provide a high level of educational performance and achievement.
The Academy Trust has had due regard to the guidance on public benefit published by the Charities Commission. The Trust wishes to promote the benefit of individuals living in Northern Lincolnshire through education and community use of facilities. All Academies are truly comprehensive and diverse in nature.
After making appropriate enquiries, the Governing Body has a reasonable expectation that the Academy Trust has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. For this reason it continues to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the financial statements. Further details regarding the adoption of the going concern basis can be found in the Statement of Accounting Policies. These conclusions apply at both individual academy and full trust level.
