Governance

At Embrace Multi Academy Trust, governance is led by its board of trustees and delegated responsibilities are carried out by the local governing boards of each school in the trust. 

The chairs of governors group meets on a termly basis, which provides an opportunity for communication and collaboration between trustees, the trust leader and local governors.

Finance and Audit

The purpose of governance is to provide confident and strong strategic leadership which leads to robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.

All governance boards have the same core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation, and making sure its money is well spent
