Every academy trust and free school is expected to publish certain specific information about its organisation and provision on its website. The Department for Education has revised its guidance to reflect the latest requirements. The revised guidance needs to be read alongside each trust’s Funding Agreement and the Academies Financial Handbook, both of which provide additional guidance on what trusts must publish on their websites.
This article explores the revisions and highlights key changes. The trust is accountable for publication of statutory information so it important that trustees and governors from academies, free schools and colleges understand the expectations and requirements.
