Roles & Responsibilities
The Board of Trustees has established a number of committees to carry out particular aspects of its role. The membership of any committee may include persons who are not Trustees, provided that a majority of members of any committee other than a governing body are Trustees.
The Board of Trustees has established a governing body for each school in the Trust, to which it has given delegated powers and responsibilities with respect to the governance of the school.
The Board of Trustees delegates to the Chief Executive Officer responsibility for delivery of the Trust’s strategy and for the implementation of the policies of the Trust, and for the day-to-day running, internal organisation, management and control of shared Trust services.
The Board of Trustees delegates to the headteacher of each school in the Trust the responsibility for the day-to-day running of the school, including the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the direction of teaching and the curriculum, and for the implementation of the policies of the Trust and governing body.
Information about the Trust’s committees and governing bodies, their roles and delegated authority, can be found in the Scheme of Delegation. For more information about a governing body, see the website for that school.
