INMAT and Local Academy Committee


Board of Governance

InMAT is governed by a trust board made up of trustees who are also known as non-executive directors.  Trustees are appointed by the Members of the trust or are co-opted onto the board.  They have a wide variety of skills and experience and work to ensure children are always put first, in line with our vision and values. 

You can find out more about the work of the trust board and the trustees here:


Governors at Hall Meadow

The local academy committee (LAC) acts as a committee of the trust board at local level.  Governors are people with a passion for education who have a connection to the school and who want to make a positive contribution to the pupil experience.  Governors must be over the age of 18.

The work of the LAC is governed by the trust scheme of delegation which you can find here 

.  Governors meet termly.  They offer challenge and support to the head teacher, set strategic direction, and monitor and evaluate school performance.  They also monitor safeguarding arrangements and are the local link for parents and others in the local community.
