About Us

Cleves Cross Learning Trust was founded in November 2013 by three members, all of whom had been long standing members of the Cleves Cross Primary School governing body and the local community. Five Directors were appointed by the members and the Directors meet regularly both as a full Board and on sub-committees to manage and direct the member schools.

Scheme of Delegation

This decision planner has been adapted by Avec for Multi Academy Trusts from the NGA Decision Planner for Governing Bodies. The Board of Directors are accountable in law for all major decisions about the Academy Trust and its future. However, this does not mean that they are required to carry out all the work themselves. Very many of the tasks can and should be delegated to individuals and committees. It is vital that the decision to delegate a task/responsibility to an individual is made by the full Board of Directors and recorded – without such a formula, the individual/committee has no power to act.
