What will happens to the Trust Board/Governing body of a school?
When a school joins a MAT, the existing GB/Trust Board will dissolve after the school/academy transfers into the Trust.
Our Trust requires all its academies to have a Local Governing Body (LGB) that is constituted in much the same way as a stand-alone school’s governing body would be. Our Scheme of Delegation ensures that LGBs are responsible, along with the Headteacher, for the majority of decisions for running the school, including staffing and finance. We call this ‘accountable autonomy’. We believe that with high quality governance and leadership in schools, this approach achieves the best outcomes.
