The Executive team ensures that the Trust has the expertise and capacity to support all schools, ensure existing schools do not suffer in anyway and will in fact benefit as a result of the Trust growing. We are automating where possible and seeking systems to help us to do things only once, creating a 'self-serve' model whilst recognising that somethings might be better undertaken centrally for efficiency or compliance reasons. The Team ensures good value for money and good communication between the central team and schools. We regularly pause and review to check direction, see if anything has changed to ensure we remain on the right track.
