The Stour Federation Multi Academy Trust has three levels of governance, to hold the CEO and Heads to account, and to ensure that the Trust operates as a charity and a limited company should do.
The Members meet once a year. They set the overall purpose, ethos, and strategic direction of the Trust, and have the power to make key appointments to ensure that these are upheld. No expansion of the Trust can happen without their approval.

The Trust Board meets six times a year and forms the board of directors of the charity, overseeing the day-to-day running of the Trust. It approves policies and procedures, and holds the CEO and Core Leaders to account for performance and outcomes across our Academies. It is assisted in this work by the Resources and Audit Committee, which checks that the Trust complies with all relevant legal obligations and regulations, both financially and operationally and monitors Trust finances during the course of the year.
Local Academy Councils meet four times a year and examine the performance, standards and resoucing of each school in detail, holding the Heads to account.
There is a clear scheme of delegation which sets out the separation of responsibilities between the Central Trust and the Local Academy Council. There is a clear path of accountability that enables discussions to take place from the Trust Board Chair to the CEO, to the Chairs of Local Academy Councils and Headteachers / Heads of School.
Great governance makes change happen and is fundamental to success by promoting attitudes and a culture where everything works towards fulfilling the vision, mission and objectives from the boardroom to the classroom.
