Governance

The Inspiring Change Multi-Academy Trust (ICMAT) Governance

The inaugural ICMAT Trust Board meeting took place on the 5th July 2017.  The Governance of ICMAT is through a structure of Members and Trustees as follows,  You can see more detail of the Governance, Committees and Terms of Reference under the ICMAT Company Information section of this website.

Our Chair of Trustees is Mrs Pamela Conibeer and she can be contacted at pam.conibeer@therowansap.co.uk or c/o The Rowans AP Academy (see "Contact Us").

Members

Members have ultimate responsibility for the trust achieving its objectives. They sign off the articles of association and have the power to appoint and remove the trustees. Academy Trusts must have a minimum of three members, although the DfE preference is for five.

Trustees

Trustees collectively deliver the core functions common to school governance. The trustees must also ensure compliance with company and charity law and with the trust’s funding agreement with the Secretary of State.

The constitution of the board of trustees is set out in our Articles of Association.

  • We currently have a vacancy for a parent/carer trustee.  If you are interested in this volunteer role, please see details in the Letters to parents/carers section.
