The AMF is concluded between the Secretary of State for Education (SoS) and the Multi Academy Trust (MAT) and is the framework under which the MAT agrees to work in exchange for funding. The AMF looks at issues such as authorizations, exclusions and reporting obligations. The Secretary of State reserves the right to terminate the funding agreement or to request the withdrawal of a member/agent if a person refuses to provide the necessary information or if the State Secretary deems it “inappropriate”. The new governance clauses are designed to ensure that inappropriate individuals or organizations are not included in the academic sector.

Changes that need to be made depend on the version used by the Academy, but include either the full replacement of the documents with the new version of the model, or the addition of additional provisions to ensure that they match those contained in the revised document.
