Two additional groups add to this process but are not formally part of the governance; the Executive Group is made up of the Headteachers of the constituent schools and the Education Board is made up of the Chairs of Governors of the constituent schools. The Education Board meets termly and will normally be chaired by the Trust Chair with the agenda being responsive to the members of the board. The minutes of the meeting are shared with Trustees and Members.
The Trust has a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who works for the Trust and also serves as the Accounting Officer. it is his/her job to ensure that the MAT operates in the way that the Trustees have envisaged and within the relevant DfE and ESFA regulations and guidance
The CEO will also have responsibility for standards across the Trust schools and will report back to the Trust Board at least 5 times a year. An Annual General Meeting will be held alongside the final Trust Board meeting in the summer term each year at which members will be present and be able to ask the Trust Board questions regarding their performance over the year.
