Charter Standards

As a Trust and the functions which sit within our organisation, we uphold customer care to the highest standards and recognise that the way in which we respond to your enquiries and needs is paramount to the trust and confidence which our schools and internal departments have across our services. 

If at any time that you are not satisfied with the response to your enquiry or request, our service in any way at all and we have not achieved our Customer Care Charter Standards; please email: businesssupport@consortiumacademy.org immediately.

Our Charter Target

As the Central Directorate for Finance & Resources, we aim for a 90% success rate to provide a full and complete response to your enquiry or request within 10 working days. 

If further works or implementation is required, your enquiry or request may exceed the initial 10 day Target but should be completed or scheduled within monitored timeframes and you can expect to be kept informed.  Once your enquiry has exceeded 40 days, it will be referred to the F&R Director for review.
