These policies apply to all our academies and have been approved in consultation with the Audit & Risk Committee on behalf of the Trust Board.
The Trusts named responsible officer is responsible for overseeing adoption, review at Trust board level and liaison with academies about implementation. If individual academies believe there is a strong case for adding specific contextual information to nuance these standard Trust policies, they should only do so in agreement with the named Trust responsible officer.
