Governance

The Trust

Trust Members oversee the achievement of the company objectives; appoint new Trustees; can amend the articles of the company and hold the land and buildings in trust.

The Trustees have strategic oversight and accountability of the MAT (Multi-Academy Trust) and they delegate responsibilities to the LAC (Local Advisory Committee).

The schools within Prosper Learning Trust have a track record of strong governance and leadership delivering high quality education with a strong pedagogy based in academic excellence in both primary and secondary specialist education.

Harry Watts Academy Governance

The Academy will have a Local Advisory Committee which will be formed during the pre-opening phase i.e. in the 2019/20 academic year. There will be up to 11 governors who will represent the local community that the school serves. We envisage representation from across education, the community, staff and parents/carers. During the year we will be looking to recruit vacancies and these will be promoted through our website. If you are interested in registering your interest to become a governor please contact admin@prosperlearningtrust.co.uk putting HWA governors in the subject bar and we will contact you to discuss further.

What is a Funding Agreement?

The funding agreement provides the legal framework for an academy or free school to operate in and is an agreement between the Academy Trust (PLT) and the Secretary of State. It sets out funding arrangements and obligations of both parties.
