As a Trust we offer a range of services which are delivered centrally.
These are tailored to the individual needs of partner schools. We have been working in this way for a number of years. This is not new to us. As a Trust, we will continue to monitor and review the services we offer, maintaining our commitment to being responsive to individual schools’ needs and requirements.
The offer is subject to pre-existing arrangements and commitments and a due diligence process. ‘Top slice’ funding will be competitive and dependent upon individual school circumstances and needs.
The services include:
- CEO with over 20 years of experience in education (15 in senior leadership) across all phases. Currently Chair of the Norfolk Headteachers’ association (Educate Norfolk).
