Trustees

The Trustees are both Charity Trustees and Company Directors, who have ultimate accountability for the way in which the academies within the James Cook Learning Trust are managed.

The trustees focus on three core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing and ensuring effective financial performance

The Trust Board may discharge its responsibilities by delegating functions in accordance with the Trust’s Articles of Association, Funding Agreement and Academies Financial Handbook. The Trust has approved a committee structure and delegated responsibility to those committees. Please follow this link for further detail.
