The work being done in both our Training and Sports Hubs goes from strength to strength and this has ensured that our staff are being trained to a very high quality, supporting their development and allowing us to retain and recruit an excellent workforce whilst seeing extremely high retention rates. We have been focussing much of our work in providing opportunities for our children and staff to be healthy and happy, which in turn allows us to ensure that we have really strong outcomes for all community members. At the end of August 2023 Maggie Cameron-Ratchford ended her term of office as our Chair of Trustees following four years in the role. During that time, the Trust has been incredibly successful and has further strengthened the work that we have done across our schools. Everyone at the Trust is very grateful to Maggie for the work that she has done and for the support that she has offered to so many of us. We are therefore delighted that Maggie will continue as a Trustee and also a LAB member at Kensington Primary School. We are delighted to present our stakeholder report for the sixth year to give you a flavour of just some of the things that have been achieved at the Trust and by our schools over the past twelve months. We are proud to work closely with all of our communities and firmly believe that ‘by working together, we really are achieving for all’.

ESTATES AND OPERATIONS 12 The Trust continues to deliver on its commitment to provide and transform outstanding facilities for our children, to ensure that every pupil is provided with a learning environment that is stimulating for them. This is one of our core values. The Trust’s estates and operations management team have invested much time and effort to secure grants and external funding to tackle issues that have gone a long way to ensuring that our schools are great environments for learning, both for our children and staff. Many improvements to our buildings continued this year and these were largely funded following bids to the DfE’s Condition Improvement Fund (CIF). Our CIF building projects included completing the replacement of the large roof areas and an electrical rewiring project at North Beckton Primary School. Other smaller projects were undertaken at the other schools to improve playgrounds and SEND facilities for our children. We have future projects planned for the replacement of boilers at some of our schools to address condition and sustainability issues. Health and Safety and Risk Management The Trust works closely with an external consultant who supports us with the management of Health & Safety across our sites. Our annual general risk assessments have shown continuous improvements which highlights TTLT’s commitment to ensuring the safety of our staff and children at every school. This is coupled with having robust risk management procedures in place that ensure we are continually assessing risk, both internally at school and at Trust level, as well as reviewing external factors that might impact on our schools. £5.5m worth of improvements to our school estates since becoming a Trust Finance Summary Our post Covid recovery continued throughout 2022-23 with our schools moving closer to normality and as a Trust we overcame a number of significant financial challenges. The pressures on budgets have never been so immediate with core funding not matching the increase in costs across key areas such as wages and inflation. With this in mind, we are delighted to report a hugely successful year for the Trust which saw us achieve our operational targets and outcomes whilst continuing to provide our children with an amazing education in thriving environments. Funding for our schools is predominantly received from the Department for Education and the Employment and Skills Funding Agency. We do also receive some funding from the Local Authority and the remaining income is a combination of smaller grants and trading income. FUNDING INCOME The largest part of our funding was spent on staff salaries with teacher’s salaries accounting for 50% and support staff 30% respectively. Other expenditure relates to key areas such as Estates Management, Technology including ICT, Teaching Resources and legislative costs. The average spend per pupil across the Trust in 2022/23 was £8729. The Trust has completed building works following successful capital grant bids over the past two years totalling more than one million pounds across all its sites. With over £100k of contributions from the Trust towards these projects, this has ensured that our buildings remain in good condition and help provide a safe environment for our pupils and staff.

PUPIL PARLIAMENT TARGETS FOR 2022/23 To work in partnership across the Trust To gather the opinions from all the children across the Trust To raise money for charities in fun and interesting ways To celebrate working in partnership PUPIL PARLIAMENT AND PUPIL VOICE At the start of each academic year, each school democratically elects its own school council and children from all age groups are included and meet regularly with their own Local Advisory Board to discuss ideas and the work that they have done. Our Pupil Parliament consists of a group of children who are the Chair and Vice Chair of their own school’s council and this group work together throughout the year, regularly meeting Trustees, for the mutual improvement of outcomes for all pupils as well as to benefit their chosen charity. This year, this group of children were part of the creative team who worked on Newham’s Young People’s Charter to help the borough become the best place for children to grow up in.
