Baroness Berridge, Minister for the School System, wrote to all academy trusts on 10th June 2021 advising that the name of the Academies Financial Handbook was changing to the Academy Trust Handbook to reflect its full range of content more accurately.
The 2021 edition of the Handbook will come into effect on 1 September 2021 and includes new information about:
- trusts’ existing obligations in relation to safeguarding, health and safety, and estates management
- parental representation on trust governance structures
- external reviews of governance
- renaming the financial notice to improve (FNtI) to notice to improve (NtI)
