The MAT is accountable for all Academies within the Trust. This means that MAT Trustees govern in the interests of the ATLAS family as a whole. The MAT Trustees set the vision for the Trust and hold the Executive Headteacher and Senior Leaders to account for delivering the Trust’s strategic plan.

The Trustees will have robust, standardised and efficient processes for effective governance, including:

  • Oversight and performance management of executive leaders and other key staff
  • Efficient reporting of all activities related to each school
  • Managing risk and mitigation strategies
  • Compliance, regularity, probity and value for money
  • Accurate and up-to-date documentation and effective communication from the Trustees
  • Full representation of a broad and balanced skill set
  • A full understanding of the role of governance in ensuring the success of ATLAS
