South Essex Academy Trust is committed to professional and excellence in governance for both the trust as a whole and each academy. It is imperative that this is highly effective in providing accountability that supports high quality educational provision, standards and improvement, as well as ensuring that each academy has clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
There are only two tiers of governance in South Essex Academy Trust.
Members, have strategic oversight for the work of the Trust and reflect the range of skills required to oversee an Academy Trust. They are responsible or appointing the Directors.
Directors (also known as Trustees) of the Trust are responsible for the running of the Trust. The academies are accountable to the Directors who both make strategic decisions impacting them and are responsible for the governance, development and oversight of each of the academies in the Trust.
The Director's tasks include:
Each Academy Committee meets three times a year. The Board of Directors meet at least six times a year plus there are three standing Committees. Pay, Finance and Audit, HR and Pay.
