    The latest news regarding the Multi Academy Trust proposal (DEALT) is that all of the Governing Bodies of the seven schools involved have agreed to continue to work through the academisation process.
    To support the schools as they move towards conversion a legal team and a Chief Finance Officer have been engaged to work alongside the Steering group and Project Manager.
