A Funding Agreement provides the framework for an academy to operate in.
The Articles of Association define our purpose as a company as well as the duties and responsibilities of our members.
The purpose of the Value of Money statement is to provide accounting officers with an opportunity to demonstrate to parents and the public that the academy trust’s use of public assets and funds has provided good value for money during the year and to identify opportunities for potential improvement.
A Certificate of Incorporation is a document that is issued to a UK company when it is registered with Companies House. This certificate confirms that a business has been incorporated under the Companies Act 2006 as a legal entity with its own identity.
Because we decided to change the company name, Companies House provided us with a Certificate of Incorporation - Change of Name. Aside from the company name, all other details remained exactly the same as the original, including the company registration number and date of incorporation.
At the end of each financial year, all academy trusts are required to produce a set of statutory audited accounts.
The Trust is required by law to carry our gender pay gap reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. Gender pay gap reporting requires us to make calculations based on colleague gender and their pay. We have done this by using our payroll records and have followed the approach to reporting set out in the government guidelines.
The Trust must publish on its website in a separate, readily accessible form the number of employees whose benefits exceeded £100k, in £10k bandings, as an extract from the disclosure in its financial statements for the previous year ended 31 August.
