Wildern Academy Trust
Care Opportunity Quality

Governance Model

The Multi Academy Trust comprises of three tiers of governance oversight, the Members, the Trust Board (Trustees) and the Local Governing Body (LGB) governors. 

Members have the power to appoint or remove Trustees, amend the Articles and receive the accounts.  Members will meet at least once a year, of which one meeting will be the Annual General Meeting (AGM). 

The Trust Board are involved in setting a long-term strategic direction for the school, act as a critical friend to the school and ensure that the school is accountable for its actions.  They are responsible for setting policies and objectives, approving the budget and ensuring financial probity, appointing staff and challenging and supporting the Headteachers and Executive Headteacher.  

The Trust Board aims to achieve a balanced group that has the right skills, experience and dynamic for the group to work well and support the Academy in achieving exceptional performance.  

The Trust Board meets once every half term, as do the Finance Committee and each school’s Local Governing Body.  

There are a number of vacancies on the Trust Board and Local Governing Body at this time.  These will be filled as the Trust progress further towards the Multi Academy Trust governance structure.
