Governance

The Trust is an exempt charity overseen by the Secretary of State for Education, governed by the Department for Education's Academies Financial Handbook and various pieces of legislation relating to both schools and charities.

The main documents that set out how we operate are our Articles of Association, which set our internal structure, and the Master Funding Agreement, which is the legal contract with the Secretary of State under which we run our schools. In addition, there are separate supplemental funding agreements for each individual school. 

Each school within the Trust has its own Local Governing Committee. They have staff, parent and community representation; membership details are included on the individual school websites. The Local Governing Committees provide key advice and support to the Headteacher and represent the interests of their community, reporting to the Trust Board on local issues. 

The Chair of Trustees can be contacted by emailing chair@inclusivemat.co.uk or by writing to: The Chair of Trustees, Inclusive Multi Academy Trust, c/o Laurance Haines School, Vicarage Road, Watford WD18 0DD.
