Resilience audits for multi academy trusts

As we adapt to a new world shaped by the Covid-19 pandemic, your multi academy trust will find itself under ever increasing educational, HR, financial and compliance pressures.

The Department for Education, the Education and Skills Funding Agency and your Regional Schools Commissioner will require your trust to demonstrate its resilience by improving standards and performance, maintaining and building capacity and ensuring the highest levels of financial management and compliance.

Your trust may also be under pressure to balance requests from your Regional Schools Commissioner to take on and turn around ‘failing’ schools with sustainable growth to secure your long-term financial viability.

Wrigleys Solicitors and Education Business Management have therefore joined forces to provide a MAT Resilience Audit that will support your trust in assessing its resilience and equipping itself for the challenges ahead.

The MAT Resilience Audit will assess your resilience across the key areas of

  • Education and Curriculum
  • Staffing and HR
  • Finance and Operations and
  • Compliance

by providing a questionnaire and information request for you to complete and return, which we will review. We will then provide a report outlining the current position and recommendations for next steps before meeting you to agree an action plan.
