Articles and Funding:

MATs are subject to two governing documents:

  • The funding agreement, which is the legal contract between the MAT and the DfE and is administered by the ESFA. There is a master funding agreement and supplementary agreements for each academy within the trust.
  • The articles of association, which set out the charitable objects of the trust along with the governance structure and overarching procedures for the academy trust.

In addition:

  • MATs are subject to the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014, which sets out issues relating to curriculum and conduct of the schools;
  • All Academy Trusts are required by their funding agreements to adhere to the terms and requirements of the Academies Financial Handbook.
