Scheme of Delegation and Terms of Reference

As a Multi Academy Trust, the Trust Board is accountable for all major decisions about their academies.  This does not mean that the Board will make every decision within the Trust, they will delegate some governance and decision-making responsibilities to:

  • The Director
  • Headteachers
  • Trust level sub-committees
  • Local Governing Bodies 

The purpose of our Scheme of Delegation

  • To ensure clarity around the roles of Members, Trustees, Director, Headteachers, committees and local governing bodies
  • That SPT operates in a fashion that is fit for purpose
  • To prevent confusion which may lead to loss of Trust with stakeholders

Please read more about our Scheme of Delegation and Terms of Reference in our SPT Governance Handbook below.
