Scheme of Delegation

As a multi academy trust, the Acorn Education Trust Board (AET) is accountable for all major decisions about our schools. This does not mean that the Board will make every decision within the Trust, they will delegate some governance and decision-making responsibilities to:
• The CEO and executive team
• Headteachers
• Trust level sub-committees
• Academy Council of Governors

This scheme of delegation defines the lines of responsibility and accountability within Acorn that the Board feels is currently appropriate to best meet the needs of all our schools.
