Belleville Wix Academy is overseen by the Quality First Education Trust, a primary multi academy trust (MAT). A MAT is a single entity which has responsibility for a number of schools: a formal partnership arrangement which is increasingly encouraged by the government. The MAT is accountable for the performance and governance of each school in the group. Our school converted to an academy and joined the Trust on 1st August 2017.
In terms of governance, there is a Board of Trustees for the MAT as a whole. You can find out about our Trustees on the Quality First Education Trust website.
The Board may then delegate responsibilities to local governing bodies (LGBs) for each school within the Trust. An LGB will be established soon for Belleville Wix Academy, and there will be parent and staff elections in due course. In the meantime all governance functions for the school will be undertaken by the Trust Board.
