One of the key benefits of joining EKC Schools Trust is its existing services infrastructure. This will ensure school leaders can focus even more on delivering a great education for pupils without worrying about operating different services which they may not be experts in.
As all our schools serve unique communities, the schools all design and implement their own curriculums but through the Trust and the relationship with the EKC Group, we are able to enhance this curriculum offer through a number of ways.
EKC Schools Trust offers a high quality human resources service, which can offer support in the recruitment, retention and development of staff. The service can also offer advice and guidance to ensure schools are complying with relevant legislation, as well as offering staff experience and wellbeing support.
EKC Schools Trust’s finance team can support on a whole host of finance related issues. From helping to run payroll, through to developing budgets, the Trust’s finance team can enhance the delivery of all finance services across the schools.
Your school has amazing stories taking place every day of the week. EKC Schools Trust can help to tell these stories, ensuring that your school receives the recognition it deserves, and potential pupils know about its successes.
From website hosting through to network development, ensuring your technology is seamless is important in a world of interactive learning. EKC Schools Trust’s Technology team can help to ensure every school day provides an immersive and inspirational learning experience.
EKC Schools Trust’s Estates Team can help to ensure your school provides the best possible learning environment. With highly qualified staff, the experienced team is able to provide project management services for capital developments, and advice and guidance on estates maintenance issues.
The Trust’s Corporate Affairs team can deliver a wide range of key services for schools. From contract management and legal advice, to procurement guidance for schools, the service will be able to help save time and money for your school.
Maintaining and respecting the importance of schools in driving their own vision and holding leaders to account is one of the core principles of EKC Schools Trust. That is why each school would have its own Local Governing Bodies to carry out these functions through a scheme of delegation.
