Brickfields Multi Academy Trust - Trustees

On 1st February 2017 Great Wakering Primary school became a Primary Academy, the lead school in the Brickfields Multi Academy Trust (www.brickfields.org). Currently there are just two schools in the Brickfields Trust, Great Wakering Primary Academy and Barling Magna Primary Academy. As an Academy Trust, governance of the two schools is now undertaken by a board trustees. Their role is similar to that of governors in that they have three core functions:

1) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

2) Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and

3) Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

Our Trustees

Trustees meet seven times per year, including an AGM in the Autumn term. In addition there are currently two further committees:  Audit committee that meets termly and a Pay Review committee that meets in the Autumn and Spring terms. The committees look at their focus areas in considerable detail and findings are fed back to the Board of Trustees.

Further information on our trustees including their biographies, attendance and business interests can be found at www.brickfields.org.
