As a Multi Academy Trust a governance structure is in place to support and monitor all that we do.
Members are the subscribers to the Trust’s memorandum of association and have the power to appoint or remove Directors. Only the Members can amend the memorandum of association and are responsible for ensuring that the MAT Board are compliant.
The MAT Board’s powers are delegated to them by the Members. They are responsible for controlling the management and operation of the Trust. They are responsible for ensuring that it is solvent, well-run and that the schools are delivering the standards required. They are responsible for setting the school budgets and appointing the Governors in the Local Governing Bodies.
The Local Governing Bodies responsibilities are delegated to them from the MAT Board. The level of delegated responsibility is negotiated but is likely to include day to day operational management, student welfare, staffing (except for the Headteacher) and budget monitoring.
Each School has a Local Governing Body that works closely with the Headteacher and staff to ensure that they are providing the best education possible to the children in our care.
In this section of our website, you will find a range of tasks/activities set by different subject areas. Have a go at as many as you can. There is a prize for the best entry in each subject. More importantly, it will keep your mind active in preparation for starting Year 9 and will also introduce you to some of the topics that you will be covering in the different subjects at Westwood.
For each activity, instructions have been given on how to present your work. Please e mail your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org and importantly, please write in the subject line which subject’s task it is, so it can be sent on to the right place. Also, make sure your name appears in the email somewhere.
Please send in your entries by 4 p.m. on Monday 13th July
Best of luck
Head of new Year 9
