As a Multi Academy Trust a governance structure is in place to support and monitor all that we do.

 

Members

Members are the subscribers to the Trust’s memorandum of association and have the power to appoint or remove Directors. Only the Members can amend the memorandum of association and are responsible for ensuring that the MAT Board are compliant.

Board of Directors

The MAT Board’s powers are delegated to them by the Members. They are responsible for controlling the management and operation of the Trust. They are responsible for ensuring that it is solvent, well-run and that the schools are delivering the standards required. They are responsible for setting the school budgets and appointing the Governors in the Local Governing Bodies.

Local Governing Bodies

The Local Governing Bodies responsibilities are delegated to them from the MAT Board. The level of delegated responsibility is negotiated but is likely to include day to day operational management, student welfare, staffing (except for the Headteacher) and budget monitoring.

Each School has a Local Governing Body that works closely with the Headteacher and staff to ensure that they are providing the best education possible to the children in our care.
