The information requested is not held centrally.

All academy trusts are bound by the requirements of the Academies Financial Handbook. This handbook establishes that they must ensure that the use of confidentiality clauses associated with staff severance payments do not prevent an individual’s right to make disclosures in the public interest under the Public Interest Disclosure Act (1998).
