Our trust has three clear layers of Governance:
- Local Academy Advisory Boards
The legal accountable body for Archway Learning Trust is the board of trustees. They are responsible to the Secretary of State for Education for the effectiveness of each of the trust academies. Trustees have established one local advisory board for each academy, with a key role to provide local input into safeguarding, standards and stakeholder engagement and to review alignment with our Trusts vision, values and strategic aims, underpinned by our Trusts Christian ethos. This approach enables academies to be and anchor in their communities and for Advisory Board members to be a significant and valued partner in the life of their academy.
All those involved in the three layers of governance are provided with regular access to continual professional development through our membership of The Key for Governors and Confederation School Trusts (CST).
The Trust delegates certain responsibilities and powers to Trust Board Committees and to our local Academy Advisory Boards under a Scheme of Delegation and Terms of Reference.
