Overview of how the Trust is governed
There are three tiers of governance for the Trust. The top two tiers – Members and the Board of Trustees – are required by the Articles of Association.
The third tier – Local Governing Bodies (LGBs) – are optional but the Board sees local governors as having an important role and each Trust school has an LGB.
Members – guard the values and ethos of the Trust; and monitor the activities of the Trust to ensure it is providing best value for parents, children and the wider community.
