In response to the changing governance needs of a multi-academy trust and the recent external governance review carried out across the trust, The Rivers CofE Academy Trust launched its innovative and sector-leading governance structure in September 2022.
The structure consists of the following advocate roles at a local school level:
The aim of our governance structure is to clearly define the roles and responsibilities of the different governance tiers in order to avoid duplication, strengthen communication between governance tiers and maximise the use of the skills, knowledge and expertise of everyone within the governance team. Pupils remain at the core of all decision-making.
Trustees recognise the importance of the local voice and are committed to ensuring that the local level contributes to the development of organisational thinking. The election of two parent/carer representatives as advocates per school ensures that the voice of parents/carers contributes to decisions made at trust board level.
