Governance Arrangements 2022-23

Following reviews in 2020 and 2021, the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership has implemented a new model for local school oversight. Defined academy representative roles known as Advocates (formerly known as governor’s) collaborate with school leaders and Trustees to enhance the strategic priorities of individual schools and the Trust as a whole. 

The structure reflects the Trust and its school’s single shared vision, a single Board of trustees and a single scheme of delegation. The governance structure is designed to reflect the overall legal responsibility of the Trust Board, and the direct link between individual school representation to both individual school and trustees. 

Our Advocates are: 

Support and Challenge : Lisa Smithson 

Vulnerable Children : Rev Noel Philips 

Safeguarding : Nicky Perkins

Community : Laura Heeley
