We are very sorry to inform you that, following the announcement from the Secretary of State for Education, we have now been asked to close all schools in the Mulberry Schools Trust from Monday 23rd March to all students except those who are categorized as vulnerable or children of key workers. We look forward to reopening as soon as the government advice changes.
The Trust Board meets four times per year to discuss matters of performance, finance, audit, quality of education and growth. Meetings of the committees and LGBs report in to the Trust Board meeting each term.
The Finance Committee is comprised of trustees with financial and resource expertise. It meets three times a year to consider matters of finance, audit premises and estate, assets, HR and business development. There is a separate audit committee that is called as required.
The Board’s Standards Committee is comprised of trustees with education expertise. It meets three times a year to consider strategy, school improvement and matters relating to the overarching quality of education, performance of schools and experience of learners within the Trust. There is a separate pay and appraisal committee that is called once a year to consider teachers’ performance related pay and the quality of appraisal.
Each school has a LGB responsible for the oversight of that school and the implementation of the Trust’s policies and strategy. The LGB is chaired by a trustee so that information flows consistently between the Board and the LGB. You can read more about the LGB of each school and their work by clicking on the individual schools’ websites.
