St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Multi Academy Trust (MAT) Governance

The MAT has brought together a core group of people with a proven track record of school improvement and experience that is relevant to making the trust a success. They are responsible for its strategic direction and are accountable for the academies to the Secretary of State and therefore determine the level of delegation to local governing bodies so that these can be as effective as possible.
