A Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) is family of schools that collaborate to form a single Trust. The Trust is then operated by a Board of Trustees and Trust Members. Together, the Trust works to ensure that each of the academies within the MAT are performing well and that they have access the support to deliver a high standard of education.
Our Trust Members are the conscience of our organisation. They appoint our Board of Directors and ensure that the values and vision of our Trust are upheld. They are also responsible for monitoring the academies and managing Vine Schools Trust’s central services.
Although the Vine Schools Trust is partnered with numerous primary schools in Essex, we do not believe in total uniformity. We believe in individuality and know that each school has its own personality and so do their local communities. We think that unique identity should always be celebrated within a MAT.
