The Board of Trustees supports each school's Local Governing Body in their ambition to have high expectations and provide challenge in order that each school is outstanding or working towards this. The Board believes that the Trust's schools take responsibility for their own decisions and wishes to enable the local governing body where possible to remain autonomous, reporting to the Trust on school improvements and development.
The Board of Trustees sets out clear terms of reference for the local governing bodies of each school and a scheme of delegation. These two documents provide the framework within which the local governing body shall operate.
The Local Governing Body for each academy and the Trust Board all sign up to a Code of Conduct (NGA) to ensure honesty and intergity are at the heart of governance.
