While the members are like the shareholders of a company, the trustees are more like Directors.
Like the Board of Directors of any big organisation, the trustees of South East Essex Academies Trust pay particular attention to:
- Setting the strategic direction for the Trust, alongside the Chief Executive.
- Making sure the finances are all in order and everything we do offers the best possible value for money and that there is consistency in things like HR policy across the trust.
- Ensuring that the trust complies with all relevant laws, including charity law requirements and the same company law requirements that apply to all Directors.
- Keeping a close eye on the executive team and the individual academy Headteachers and holding them to account at all times through the Chief Executive.
The following are Trustees of South East Essex Academy Trust:
