Nexus MAT Trust Board and Committee Meetings

The Trust Board of Directors meets at least 6 times per year, usually 17:00—19:30 hrs.

The Trust Board has a Chair and Vice Chair and also has an Audit & Finance Committee and a Standards Committee.

All Trust committees must be made up of a majority of MAT Directors and chaired by a Director.

The Audit & Finance Committee meets six times per year and holds delegated responsibilities for overseeing the management of risk, finance, ICT strategy and the Executive’s response to internal and external audit recommendations.

The Standards Committee meets 3 times per year and holds delegated responsibilities for overseeing the quality of education standards in our academies, including the management of risk (in conjunction with the A&F committee) and ensuring safeguarding practices are effective.

Both committees work in conjunction with Local Governing Bodies, who scrutinise academy information in more detail.

The Trust also has a Headteacher/Local Governing Body Chair Advisory Forum, which is chaired by a MAT Director and is used as a means of connecting the work of the local governing bodies with the work of the Trust Board.
