Governance

All members of the Trust Board share an unceasing ambition to contribute towards providing an outstanding education for all young people regardless of ability, gender, social background, ethnic origin or sexual orientation. The Trust has been built upon the success of Rochdale Sixth Form College and is testament to the life-changing opportunities that can be afforded to young people through talented and inspirational leaders and teachers, alongside effective assessment, intervention and support. Altus Education Partnership wishes to continue improving the life chances of young people in the area through developing a family of outstanding academies.

The Trust is committed to the highest standards of governance across the Trust Board, its committees and all Local Academy Councils (LACs) to ensure robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance. This will enable the Trust to achieve the three core functions required of its governance:

  • 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 effective and efficient performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and ensuring its money is well spent

There is significant separation between members and trustees to enable members to exercise their powers objectively.
