Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

St Christopher’s Multi Academy Trust (MAT) is structured in accordance with its Memorandum and Articles of Association. It aims to provide governance that is conducive to effective working, ensuring that checks and balances are in place whilst avoiding duplication and delivering effective two way communication.

 

The founding members appoint further Trustees with the Diocesan Board of Education maintaining a majority of appointments. When appointing new Trustees, the Board gives consideration to the skills and experience mix of existing Trustees in order to ensure that the Board has the necessary skills to contribute fully to the MATs development.

 

Each school within the MAT has its own local governing body to whom delegated authority is clearly defined via a scheme of delegated authority. Each Trustee takes responsibility for a portfolio area and provides the point of contact on this topic to local governors to ensure effective communication.

 

In simple terms, the governance structure delegates the ‘business’ matters of running a school to the Board of Trustees and Trust senior management team, freeing up school leaders to focus on teaching, learning and school improvement.

Governors have specific areas of responsibility:

 

Chair of Governors:             Kirsty Sidgreaves

Vice-Chair of Governors:     Andrew Thomas

Safeguarding Lead:             Shirley Herod

Clerk to the LGB                  Siw Wysome   email:  mod.clerk@stcmat.org
