The Department for Education has released a new resource
from the 2018 MAT development programme.
The guidance is intended for senior leadership teams of multi-academy trusts (MATs) of any size or stage of development, and it can be used as a tool to help them further develop and improve.
The resource consists of suggested questions to consider in relation to the key aspects of a MAT’s operations, such as the following:
- School improvement and developing people
- Governance and risk management
- Finance and school resource management.
The questions are suggested areas of focus that help MATs to reflect on their practices; they are not considered a definitive list.
The guide also includes suggestions for how the questions can be used, either as a self-evaluation tool or in partnership with another MAT. It is for MATs to decide whether and how to use this resource.
Access the guidance here.
