Introduction

Kaleidoscope Learning Trust is a charitable company (Company Registration number: 08604799, registered in England and Wales) limited by guarantee and has a three tier management system – Members, Trustees and Local Governing Bodies.

The Members of the Trust are similar to the ‘shareholders’ in a company and appoint the Trustees.

The Trustees are appointed to set the strategy of the company and to exercise oversight of the strategic direction and day-to-day running of the company.

Each Trustee fulfils two particular roles:

  • Trustee – because the MAT is a charity and a legal entity;
  • Director – because the MAT is a company.

Each academy in the Trust has a Local Governing Body responsible for the day-to-day running of their academy, in line with the strategic direction set by the Trust Board. Local Governing Bodies report to the Board of Trustees of the MAT.

Information regarding Local Governing Body information for each academy can be found by following the links below:
