Trust Partner Schools

Schools are at the heart of everything we do at the Trust. We currently provide support to 46 schools in North Tyneside, spanning all ages, phases and types.

To find out more about how we support Trust schools visit the Our Work page.

What is a Trust school?

A Trust School is a local authority maintained school which is supported by a charitable Trust which appoints some of the governors. It remains part of the local authority, family of schools.

It operates within the same frameworks as other maintained schools:
  • It teaches the National Curriculum;
  • Follow the Schools Admissions Code and;
  • Can be inspected by Ofsted.
Teaching staff are employed under terms of the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document. The local authority funds the school on the same basis as all other authority schools and retains its intervention powers if there are problems at the school. Trust schools differ because their charitable Trust (the North Tyneside Learning Trust) establishes a long-term relationship with external partners and involves them in the school's governance and leadership. The governing body of a Trust School (which retains parents, stagg, community and authority governors) remains responsible for all major decisions about the school and its future. The skills and experience of the Learning Trust-appointed governors strengthen the whole governing body and make a contribution to the school's ethos. The governing body remains responsible for all aspects of the conduct of the school (including the school's budget and staff) and so responsibilities and accountabilities remain clear. A Trust School does mean that:
  • The school becomes its own admissions authority
  • The governing body becomes the employer
  • Land, building and assets will be transferred from the local authority (LA), and held by the Trust

What is a Partner School?

From April 2015 the Trust funding arrangements changed and a Partnership Agreement was offered to every school in North Tyneside. Trust Partner schools are supported in the same way as Trust member schools were prior to April 2015. The Trust currently supports 46 Partner schools which can be found in the table below. To find out how to become a partner school please email info@ntlearningtrust.org.uk.
