Overview of DSAMAT Governance

Our Members are appointed by the Diocese of St Albans Educational Trust. 

Members have strategic oversight for the work of the Trust, and include representatives from the Diocesan Board of Finance and Diocesan Board of Education.  These bodies reflect the range of skills required to oversee an Academy Trust.

Trustees, also known as Directors, of the Trust are appointed by the Members and have strategic responsibility for its running of the Trust.  Our academy schools have Local Governing Boards (LGBs) or Regional Hub Boards (RHBs) which provide local governance to each school, and feed into the wider strategic work of the Directors.

Trust Directors Committees

The Board of Directors has established the following committees:

  • Finance & Operations Committee
  • Audit and Risk Committee
  • Pay & Personnel Committee

Details of Members and Directors are available on the drop down menu.

Regional Hub Boards and Local Governing Bodies

Individual academies are governed at a local level either by their own Local Governing Body (LGB), or by a Regional Hub Board (RHB).  RHB’s govern a number of academies within a geographical footprint.  RHB’s and LGBs have the same level of delegated responsibility from the Directors.  Currently, Manshead CE Academy and Ravensden CE Primary Academy have their own LGB.  The Eastern RHB is responsible for Roxton, Caldecote and Churchfield Academies.  Our Western RHB is responsible for Totternhoe, Kensworth and Thomas Whitehead Academies.
