The Board of Trustees

In EVAT, governance is a shared duty of the Board of Trustees and the Education Standards Committees (ESCs) for each academy.

To avoid unnecessary duplication and so that responsibility is clear, EVAT has allocated responsibility for strategic and financial matters to the Board of Trustees (and its Finance, Audit Risk and Resources Committee) and the monitoring of educational standards and holding senior leaders to account for the educational performance is the core responsibility of the Education Standards Committees. Each academy has its own ESC, but the Board remains accountable and is ultimately responsible for all decisions made.

The Board makes decisions in the best interests of pupils and welcome a diverse range of viewpoints when debating decisions.

Trust Boards have three core functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of the vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding the Executive Leaders to account for the educational performance of the school(s) and its pupils and the effective and efficient performance management of staff
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school(s) and making sure that its money is well spent.

Trustees hold a strategic role and avoid involvement in operational matters. They focus on holding the Chief Executive (CE) to account for exercising professional judgement and all other duties.

EVAT’s Trustees are:
