Governance Overview

Academy Trust

The body ultimately responsible for the schools is The Beckmead Trust. This body is the employer of all staff within the Trust and accountable to the Secretary of State through the terms of its funding agreement. The strategic direction for the Trust is provided by the Board of Trustees. The Board delegates the day to day operation of the Trust to the CEO.

Local boards of governors

Our schools are overseen by a locally-recruited board of governors who will be accountable to the Board of Trustees. Members of the Trust and school governors will meet regularly with senior leaders and school staff in order to provide both challenge and support for the schools. They will act as critical friends to the schools.
