Governance

The Trust has defined the responsibilities of persons involved in the governance of the MAT to avoid the duplication or omission of functions and to provide a framework of accountability for members, trustees/directors, governors and staff.  The Governance structure is illustrated below:

Local Governing Bodies:

In the MAT, each academy school has its own local governing body (LGB). These have a similar status to committees of a maintained governing body and the only powers they have are those delegated to them by the Board. Individuals serving on a LGB may also be trustees of the MAT.  LGBs have delegated authority to run the academy but the Executive the Board is ultimately responsible for all academies.  All members are trust-appointed except Parent Trustees (marked P).
