Academy Trust

Following consultation with parents in May 2015, The Marlborough Primary School converted to Marlborough Primary School as the only school in Mulberry Multi Academy Trust on the 1st April 2016. Following extensive reseach, the Trust decided to join Fallibroome Multi Academy Trust on the 1st September 2019 to enable Marlborough School to access high quality training, support and resources.

Much of the day to day running of the school remains the same with our core function continuing to be to provide the best education for our pupils. The school will retain a Local Governing Body who will continue to provide challenge and support as they have done previously. Fallibroome Trust has its own Trustees and Members who oversee the work of the Trust as a whole.

The Role of the Governing Body

The Local Governing Body promotes the vision, ethos and strategic direction of a particular school within a Multi Academy Trust.  Local governors are a critical friend to the headteacher and hold her to account for the school’s performance. They also oversee the use of resources to ensure money is well spent.

The Chairperson of the Local Governing Body is Mrs Helen Ashcroft who can be contacted via Marlborough Primary School, Tytherington Drive, Macclesfield, Cheshire, SK10 2HJ

At Marlborough, the Local Governing Body holds two meetings per term.  One meeting is focused on pupils and the second meeting is focused on resources.

There are up to thirteen members of the Local Governing Board:

Members are the top tier of governance within a Multi Academy Trust.  These members sit on the board of The Mulberry Trust and only have occasional meetings.  Their role, amongst others, is to set and ensure that the trust’s objectives are being met and also maintain an overview of the effectiveness of the trust structure.  They have the power to amend the Memorandum of Association as well as appoint and remove trustees and local governors. Like company directors, they must have the best interest of the trust uppermost in their minds at all times and have a duty of compliance to ensure all relevant laws and regulations are followed.  Once the Mulberry Academy Trust is formally dissolved, the Members role will cease to exist.
