How the Trust works

First and foremost, we are a Catholic Trust and our role is to provide and safeguard the future of a World Class Catholic education to all the young people within our Trust. The Trustees (who form the Trust Board) are responsible for the strategic direction which drives this forward. They in turn are supported by the Head Teachers’ Group (HTG), which includes all our Executive Head Teachers, Head Teachers and Heads of School. This ensures there is a constant flow of dialogue between Trust, Local Governing Bodies and the HTG. All these bodies are also supported by the Catholic Executive Officer and Director of Finance and Resources, who attends the HTG as well as the Trust committees.

Each school has a Local Governing Body (LGB) with Governors appointed by the Diocese or elected by parents and staff. The LGB oversee the quality of education and deployment of resources with their school to ensure they both support and deliver the world class Catholic education we aspire to provide within all our Trust Schools.

Everyone who works in one of our Academies is an employee of the All Saints Catholic Academy Trust and the Trustees are responsible for developing and ensuring the implementation of policies across all our schools to support this. The work of the whole Trust is underpinned by our Christian values as understood in the Catholic tradition by focusing on the Beatitudes as our guide: 

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
     for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,
     for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
     for they will inherit the land.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
     for they will be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,
     for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the clean in heart,
     for they will see God. 

Blessed are the peacemakers,
     for they will be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
     for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
