Local Governors play an important role in our trust.

We have a Chairs Network who meet each half term led by our chair of trustees and National Leader of Governance, Sarah Armitage.

Communication is very important and at each meeting of Local Governors there is a standard item to report things discussed that are important for the trust to know and at each board meeting there is also a standing item on the agenda for anything important to report back. 

Our latest governance structure can be accessed below:
