The Members are responsible for ensuring that the ethos of the organisation is preserved, and holding the directors to account for the performance of the organisations within the trust.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the management of the trust by establishing a policy framework for the management teams to follow, monitor implementation of the policies and take corrective action if the policies are not being implemented to an appropriate standard.

The Governors who sit on the LGB are responsible for carrying out the powers delegated to them by the Trustees, monitoring implementation of the relevant policies, and taking corrective action if the policies are not being implemented satisfactorily.

The purpose of the Finance & Audit Committee is to:

  • Ensure sound financial management of the Academy’s resources including proper planning, monitoring and probity
  • Advise on the adequacy and effectiveness of the Academy’s systems of internal control and its arrangements for risk management, control and governance processes, and securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness (value for money)

The purpose of the Staffing Committee is to:

  • Conduct agreed arrangements for recruitment and selection of all Academy staff
  • Agree the Academy pay policy and monitor its implementation
  • Ensure safeguarding procedures are in place

Should you wish to speak to our Chair or any member of the Board of Trustees or Local Governing Body, they can be contacted through school reception.
