Chair of Director’s Message

I am pleased to welcome you to the Children First Learning Partnership website.

Our Trust has grown out of work that the schools in our Trust have been doing together for some time and because we believe that Inspiring Excellence Together is important in helping our children and young people grow up to be the best they can be we have recently formalised our relationship to form a Multi Academy Trust.

Our Directors have been chosen basis of their knowledge of the local area, their skills and knowledge in education, governance and finance.  We will bring the skills, knowledge and experience we have to our work as Directors. You can find out more about us in our pen portraits.

Our work as Directors is focused around the 3 core functions of governance which are:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the Trust
  • holding the Chief Executive to account for the performance of the schools, their pupils and the performance of the staff
  • overseeing the financial performance of the Trust and ensuring that money is well spent.

Children First Learning Partnership recognises the importance of, and role to be played, by our Local Advisory Boards and how they share, shape and grow each academy into our family of academies . We will endeavour to ensure that all our staff, pupils, parents and carers have their voices heard. I am sure it will be an exciting journey!

As the current chair of Directors I welcome you to our Trust.
