CHURCH MAT CONSULTATION FEEDBACK

C.I.T - Community Inclusive Trust. Where learning comes first

The Community Inclusive Trust (C.I.T) is exploring the possibility of becoming a Church Multi-Academy Trust (a mix of Church of England Schools, Community Schools and Special Schools) with the majority of the Members being appointed by the Lincoln Diocesan Board of Education (LDBE).

For C.I.T to become a Church MAT in the diocese of Lincoln, the Trust would need to adopt model ‘majority’ Articles of Association approved by the Church of England and Department for Education. These articles would ensure that the Christian foundation of church schools entering C.I.T would be protected. It is important to note that the articles would also preserve the individual character and identity of existing schools within the Trust and any non-church schools considering joining C.I.T. In brief, this change in the articles would allow both church and non-church schools to join the trust, which C.I.T feels is in line with the recently released White Paper.

This consultation commenced on Wednesday 11th May and closed on Friday 3rd June 2022.

C.I.T received 33 responses to the consultation.
