Welcome from the Chair of the Trust Board
I am delighted to welcome you to the local committee page of our Trust website. I hope you find the content helpful and informative.
Each local committee is responsible for:
- Establishing the strategic direction
- Ensuring accountability
- Overseeing compliance
- Ensuring risks to the organisation are managed
But there is more to the role of our local committees than working with our staff to secure these ends. One of the strengths of the Trust is the individual identity of each of our schools. And, of course, local oversight is vital to ensuring that each Trust school has deep roots in its community and serves local needs and aspirations in ways that work for the whole school community.
So, to all who serve as members of local committees in Trust schools, a huge “thank you” for all you do for our schools and their communities, and for all this brings to the Trust.

The role of Local Committees: Scheme of Delegation
The Trust operates local committees through a Scheme of Delegation and provides a half termly workplan, in line with the Trusts calendar and statutory return deadlines. The detail of the constitution of our local committees is provided within their terms of reference.
The current membership of local committees for each school can be found on individual school websites and will include staff and parent representation.
All local committee members are appointed by the Trust and are expected to perform their duties in accordance with a Code of Conduct.
It situations where rapid improvement of a school is required, Trustee Directors may choose to put in place an Interim Academy Board to work alongside or replace the local committee.
All local committee activity and communication takes place through our secure intranet Governors Virtual Office
