This document has been archived as the funding agreement it refers to has been replaced by the ‘Mainstream academy and free school: single model funding agreement’.
This is an introductory guide to the single academy model funding agreement.
This guide is aimed at governors (trustees) of existing open academies and those considering converting to a converter or sponsored academy. The intention is to provide a clearer understanding of exactly what the funding agreement means for the freedoms, obligations or requirements placed on academy trusts. The guide may also be of interest to headteachers (principals), sponsors and potential sponsors.
