Leadership and Governance of the Trust

The vision of The Harmony Trust is that it will be known for best practice in educational excellence.

There is a strong moral purpose to do what is best for children and families and this underpins our ethos. We aim to raise aspirations and attainment of all children, developing pupils with high self-esteem and responsibility.

The Trust is committed to the delivery of high quality education delivered by excellent staff, in a caring, supportive, learning environment.

 

The legal Governing Body of all academies in the Harmony Trust is the Trust Board itself.

Members of the Trust are directly responsible for appointing the Trustees.

The Trust Board maintains direct responsibility and accountability directly to the Secretary of State and the Department for Education in London.

 

The Members and the Trust Board have 2 committees & a forum structure as below in each academy.

  • the Finance and Audit & Risk committee
  • the Standards committee and Pay & Performance committee. Each individual academy has an advocate on the Board, who knows their academy very well.

Each academy has in place a:-

  • Academy Staff Forum
  • Academy Parents Forum
  • Academy Pupil Forum / Council

These groups are made up of representatives who give key stakeholders of the academy a forum to discuss issues, voice ideas to support the academy and share successes and areas for development.
