In a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), the Trust is responsible for all of its schools/academies. For the Community Inclusive Trust, governance of our MAT resides with Members, Trustees and Local School Boards.
Members: The members are akin to the shareholders of a company. They have ultimate control over the academy Trust, with the ability to appoint some of the Trustees and the right to amend the Trust’s Articles of Association. CLICK HERE to view the CIT Articles.
Trustees: The trustees are responsible for the three core areas of governance:
– Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
– Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and
– Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.
CIT’s Members and Trustees oversee the whole organisation and the MAT is the legal Governing Body for all CIT schools, but much of the work of the Trust Board is delegated to the Local School Board. CLICK HERE to view the CIT Scheme of Delegation.
Local School Boards and Local Governors: At Boston Endeavour Academy, we have a committed team of Governors who are actively involved in the life of the school. They reflect the community we serve and include parent, community and staff representatives. Governors serve as a key link between the Trust Board, parents/carers and the local community. They monitor the performance of the school, advising the Trustees on what’s going well and of any concerns.
If you want to bring any matters to the attention of the Local School Board, you should email the Clerk: email@example.com or address your correspondence to the Chair of Governors at the school address.
The Governors are passionate about the school and are here to make sure that every young person is given the best education, opportunities and experiences possible. Our Governors play an important role in overseeing the work of the school, acting as “critical friends” for the Senior Leadership Team and holding the school to account for performance and development.
Please note that any complaints regarding the school must be raised in line with our complaints policy found HERE and cannot be raised with the Local School Board.
