Meet the Governors and Statutory Documents

Governance

 

The Trust is governed by three groups that represent the local community, the Diocese of Bath and Wells and local schools.

Policy is generated by the Academic board (mainly made up of the headteachers in the Trust) and then prepared for scrutiny and approval by the Trustees. The members ensure that the work of the Trustees is effective and is responsible for appointing Trustees.

 

The Academic board meets every month and is chaired by the CEO. The Trustees meet every term to scrutinize the work of the Academic board to ensure that we maintain high standards. The Members meet less frequently to receive reports from Trustees and scrutinise their work.
