The constitution of an academy is set out in its Articles of Association which are agreed with the secretary of state.

Brickfields Trust Scheme of Delegation

This Scheme of Delegation is the key document defining the lines of responsibility and accountability within the Brickfields Multi Academy Trust. It is our systematic way of ensuring members, trustees, committees, executive leadership and local leadership are clear about their roles and responsibilities. This Scheme of Delegation should not be confused with the written scheme of delegation of financial powers referred to in the Academies Financial Handbook.
