What is a multi–academy trust?
A Multi-Academy Trust, MAT, is a single charitable company which operates a group of schools. In this case, each school will continue to have a local governing body to which certain functions will be delegated under the Scheme of Delegation. The MAT will ultimately be accountable and responsible for the performance of all schools in the trust.
Funding for the schools within the MAT will continue to be allocated on an individual academy basis.
