Local Governing Bodies:
The Trustees establish a Local Governing Body (LGB) for each school in the MAT. A scheme of delegation will affords each member school control of internal budgets, following agreement with Trustees as to the level of commitment to centrally shared resources. The LGB reports to the Trustees and takes a strategic role in the governance of their school to hold the Headteacher and other senior leaders to account in respect of safety and wellbeing, educational standards and achievement of agreed plans and objectives.

Interim Governance Arrangements:
The Trustees have determined that whilst Oak Lodge, as an academy converter remains the only operational school in the Trust, the committee structure of the previous maintained school will apply. See Local Governing Body page for further detail. The Trust through its Accounting Officer, will ensure that all statutory responsibilities are fully discharged.
