EAT was formally WDAT (Wakefield Diocesan Academies Trust) and was incorporated as a charitable company on 10 January 2012 – company number 07904096. It was established to act as sponsor for Church of England, and other, schools that are required or elect to become a sponsored academy. The three Trustees of EAT undertake an over-arching and strategic role ensuring that their vision for the character and ethos of EAT, and its role in the local education system, is carried forward. The Trustees delegate some their responsibilities to EAT’s Director and to the Local Governing Bodies established at each Academy. During the period of conversion from a school to an academy it is often necessary to establish an Advisory Board prior to establishing a Local Governing Body.
EAT works closely with each of its academies, and a number of partners, to deliver one fundamental objective – delivering improved educational outcomes for every pupil at each of the Trust’s Academies.
