A Local Authority Multi Academy Trust The Background: The 2022 White Paper (Opportunity for All) outlined the opportunity for local authorities to set up multi-academy trusts, stating, "Local authorities will be able to establish new multi academy trusts where too few strong trusts exist, enabling high performing schools with a track record of local partnership to formalise their relationships and add expertise and capacity to the trust system." page 48 (White Paper - March 2022) Northumberland Local Authority is hoping to participate in the test and learn phase of this new strategy. The expectation is that, "By 2030, all children will benefit from being taught in a family of schools, with their school in a strong multi academy trust or with plans to join or form one." page 43 Useful Documents: Opportunity For All - the White Paper (DfE) A Webinar for North East Schools (RSC) A Guide to Forming or Joining a MAT (ASCL) A Webinar for North East Schools (RSC) - slide deck If your school is interested in finding out more about a local authority multi-academy trust please register your interest here.
