Project Description

Premier Learning Trust is a multi-academy trust working with Holland Park Primary School and Alton Park Primary School.

multiacademy trust (MAT) is a single entity established to undertake a strategic collaboration to improve and maintain high educational standards across a number of schools. A group of schools form a single MAT which has overarching responsibility for their governance. The MAT is the most formalised type of collaborative structure available for schools.

All academies within a MAT are governed by one trust and a single board of Directors. This is the organisation that runs a number of academies under a single charitable company. The board of Directors is responsible for decisions relating to how each academy is run, however, each individual academy retains its own governing body and the Trust delegates some of its functions to the governing body.

The MAT will be accountable and responsible for the performance of the each of the academies in the chain and may delegate its decision-making powers to the governing boards of the individual academies if it wishes. The multi-academy trust will enter into a master funding agreement with the Secretary of State for Education and funding is allocated to each individual academy via a supplemental agreement between each academy and the Secretary of State for Education.

The Challenge

Premier Learning Trust produce many reports of varying sizes as well as smaller documents and a cover for these documents was suggested by Pylon Design. Following the corporate brand, Pylon Design were briefed to produce a system that is cost-effective and flexible to be used for different reports.

The Solution

Using the corporate colours to divide the cover into half, Pylon Design prepared a cover which has the logo and 3 mission goals on the top half and the bottom half left blank. These pre-printed covers can be fed through Premier Learning Trusts printers to include different report titles on the bottom half of the page. The solution allows each report to have a bespoke, consistent and individual cover, recognisable as part of Premier Learning Trusts brand identity.
