Further Information

Durham Diocesan MAT is a multi-academy trust of seven primary schools within the geographical area of the Diocese of Durham. A further two primary schools are due to join the Trust later in 2020. The primary governance group is the Board of Directors and this group meets half-termly. An AGM is also held each year.

The Trust has established an Academy Council for each school and, through its Scheme of Delegation, has delegated a range of responsibilities to each Academy Council. The Trust works with a consultant Operational Governance Support Partner (OGSP) who manages the strategic governance support to the Trust and clerks the main Trust Board meetings. Each Academy Council meets half termly and one of these meetings is currently clerked through the Trust’s present governance support arrangements.

As the Trust grows the current consultant OGSP needs support and assistance in clerking the main Trust board meetings and administering governance arrangements across the Trust. The Academy Councils do not have standing committees but committees may be formed as required.

Key responsibilities:

• To support the Operational Governance Support Partner (OGSP) with the management and administration of governance within the Trust ensuring the Trust meets all statutory requirements.
• To support the OGSP in providing an efficient, confidential and effective administrative, organizational and secretarial support service to Academy Councils as required and as directed by the OGSP.
• To provide such other support to the OGSP related to the governance of the Trust as is reasonably required.
