Scheme of Delegation
The ‘Scheme of delegation’ is fundamental to how a MAT operates, laying out who has responsibility for what in terms of the Trust and the individual schools. The principle behind our scheme of delegation is that individual schools and their Local School Committees need to continue to set the ethos and culture within the school and drive improvement within their own institution.
The Trust is able to make that easier by taking on some of the responsibilities and functions that sometimes get in the way of the focus on young people and their school experience. Areas such as finance, facilities management, Human Resources and IT are often better provided centrally where economies of scale and specialism can make a positive difference to quality and value for money.
The MAT has overall responsibility for all the schools in the Trust and will be pro-active in ensuring all its schools continue to improve and strive for excellence.
