Thomas Whitehead CE Academy is part of the Diocese of St Albans Multi Academy Trust (DSAMAT). The DSAMAT was founded by the Diocese of St Albans, and is a Trust working with schools across Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. The DSAMAT community has a strong commitment to a shared mission.
Enabling all to flourish: Rooted in God’s Love
This is underpinned by our shared values:
Hope, nurture, collaboration, equality, respect
Our Trust is governed by a range of bodies. Members have strategic oversight for the work of the Trust, include representatives from the Diocesan Board of Finance and Diocesan Board of Education and reflect the range of skills required to oversee an Academy Trust. Directors of the Trust are appointed by the Members and are responsible for the day-to-day running of the Trust. The academies are accountable to the Directors who make strategic decisions impacting them.
Individual academies are governed at a local level by their own Local Governing Board (LGB). LGBs have the same level of delegated responsibility from the Directors which is outlined within the Governance Framework and financial delegation.
Thomas Whitehead CE Academy are currently in the process of establishing an LGB. If you would like more information, please contact the school office on 01582 865466 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
