April/May 2017 review: Education and Skills Funding Agency

Friday, July 6, 2018

Following its review of the David Ross Education Trust (‘The Trust’) in April/May 2017, the Education and Skills Funding Agency has published its financial management and governance review of the Trust.

A spokesperson for the Trust said: “Since the ESFA completed its review in May 2017, the Trust has appointed a new and experienced executive leadership team and strengthened its Board with new Trustee appointments.  The executive team have quickly brought about key improvements in financial and operational management, recognised by the ESFA as positive progress since its review over a year ago, while delivering school improvement in partnership with academies.”

Notes to editors:

The David Ross Education Trust is a network of unique and diverse academies, committed to becoming the top performing multi-academy trust in the country. The Trust works with 34 primary and secondary academies across the East Midlands, Yorkshire and the East of England. Our schools range from smaller rural primaries with around 50 children, to much larger secondary schools in the centre of more urban areas.
