Local Governance

Our MAT structure has been designed to deliver highly effective school support thorugh our Executive Team. This team is made up of the Head Teachers and Senior Officers and meets on a weekly basis. The team develops Strategic Plans in collaboration with the Trust Board.

We have maintained and encourage active and challenging Local Governing Bodies in each school, and they are delegated significant responsibilities for their school. This structure ensures that local issues will be addressed using local knowledge.

We also have a MAT central team of officers who have established common business platforms and procedures for all MAT schools. This team drives efficiencies and economies, at the same time ensuring all schools continue to work within the framework we have established.
