Declaration of Interests

A Register of Interests for all of those involved with governance is maintained by the Governance Adviser. It is available to view here.

Standing Orders

All organisations benefit from having rules which govern the conduct of meetings. The Standing Orders of East Norfolk Sixth Form College were first approved by the Board on 19 July 2011 and are regularly reviewed. Further to academy conversion, they have since been adopted by the East Norfolk Multi Academy Trust. The Standing Orders contain information on a variety of policies and procedures applied by the Board. If you have a question about how the Board is run, you will most likely find the answer here.

You will find information on the following issues (and much more) included in the Standing Orders document:

• Attendance by the public at meetings

• Attendance at meetings policy for Trustees and Local Governors

• Responsibilities of the Chair, Principal and Clerk

• Annual schedule of Board approvals

• Policy on appointments and re-appointments

• Current Committee membership

• Governor expenses policy

• Committee terms of reference

    The Master and Supplemental Funding Agreements

    These agreements are made between the Secretary of State for Education and the East Norfolk Multi Academy Trust. They detail how the Trust will be funded for the purposes of providing education and set out the rules pertaining to this funding.

    Scheme of Delegation (Decision and Responsibility Matrix)

    The Board of Trustees is supported by several Committees and senior staff. The scheme of delegation sets out what authorities are afforded to each tier of governance within the Trust i.e. what authority is devolved to where. It features routine and scheduled matters which require attention throughout the academic year and sets out which body is responsible for them.

    "East Norfolk gave me the stepping stones I needed to be where I am today and it is safe to say I would not be in the position I am today without them and I am truly thankful for the help and support my tutors and the college gave me."
    Louis Cook
    "East Norfolk was such a wonderful college due to the dedication and commitment of the teaching staff to our learning, and their support throughout the academic year, from extra revision sessions to university applications."
    Rebecca Wigmore
    "ENSFC inspired me to follow my love of history and literature, with great teachers that pushed me to research and write to my full potential. I fondly remember forging great friendships, lively debates in classrooms, and supportive staff that brought out my confidence in the subjects that I now specialise in and teach myself."
    Emma Butcher
    Academic, author and broadcaster
    "ENSFC really gave me the opportunity to study for A Levels that were closely aligned to my interests in an environment where I developed from a teenager into an adult. I really feel I came into my own between when I left high school and when I left ENSFC in a way that probably wouldn't have happened if I'd stayed at the same school "
    Adam Smith
    EN Alumni
    "My memories of college are very positive ones! Not only did I meet some great people - both student and teachers, but it gave me the grounding to apply myself, to question and to think critically. ENSFC acted as a fantastic platform to help me understand what I wanted to do at university and beyond. "
    Rebecca Mahony
    Former EN Student
    "East Norfolk helped massively in getting me to university. My a level subjects helped me to realise the topics I enjoyed the most, and ucas applications were dealt with simply with the help that was available for this. The learning environment at EN has also greatly helped me settle into the lecture teaching style, where self study learning is hugely encouraged."
