Academy Governance

Bengeworth Multi-Academy Trust Governance

Bengeworth Multi-Academy Trust formed on 1st February 2018 when Bengeworth CE Academy changed from a Standalone Academy to a Multi-Academy Trust.  On the same date, Bretforton Village School then converted to an academy and joined the new MAT too.

Bengeworth Multi-Academy Trust now consists of two Academies:

           Bengeworth CE Academy (with two sites at Burford Road and Kings Road)

             Bretforton Village School

Bengeworth Multi-Academy Trust is an Exempt Charity and a Company registered at Companies House, number 08943457.

There are three layers of governance:

 1   THE TRUST 

The Charity has four 'Members' of the Charitable Trust::  Mr Andrew Martyr-Icke, Mr Simon Hill,              Mrs Julie Bourdon-Pierre, Mrs Margaret Percival.

They have oversight of the Trust and are the subscribers to the Memorandum of Association and have powers to appoint Trustees (Directors) and receive the annual audited accounts.

 2  THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS (DIRECTORS)

There are seven Directors of the MAT Board (also known as the Trustees) who operate at a strategic level (they are the owners of the company rather like shareholders).   They are responsible for establishing the aims and policies of the school, setting and implementing the school budget, and ensuring that the curriculum is taught. The MAT Board meets at least half-termly.

3  SCHOOL GOVERNING BODY

Each school in the Trust has a Local School Governing Body. There are eleven Local School Governors at Bengeworth (who together make up the School Governing Body), and they have responsibilities delegated to them by the Academy Trust.  The School Governing Body is composed of  representatives from the Church, local community, school and parents.  They set targets for the school and ensure the implementation of these targets. They visit the school regularly and act as a link between parents, the Church, and the school.  The Governors have regular half-termly meetings and have also formed Working Groups/Committees to focus on specific areas.

The constitution of an Academy Trust is set out in its Articles of Association which are agreed with the Secretary of State.

For further information about the governance of the Trust, school  governors and attendance, please see the other Tabs and read the Annual Report and Accounts.
