Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is responsible for the oversight of the school and for determining the policies which govern the management of the school.
The Board of Trustees is made up of parents, teaching and non-teaching staff and members of the community with specific expertise to bring to the board.
Trustees sit on one of a two committees which have an overview of the work of both schools. These committees are the Quality and Standards Committee, and Finance and Personnel Committee. New members are elected to the Board of Trustees at various points in the year when vacancies arise.
The Board of Trustees can be contacted through the school office. The KAT Governance Structure and KAT Scheme of Delegation are to be found below.
Declarations of Interest
The Clerk will hold and maintain a register of Trustees’ interests.
All Trustees are required to manually complete an entry in the Register of Interests on an annual basis. Trustees can add or remove interests from the Register during the year.
Trustees are required to declare any personal or financial interests that could be seen to have an impact upon the exercise of their role and responsibilities as a Trustee. Normally Trustees will declare, at the outset of a meeting, any potential conflicts arising from the planned business of that meeting.
If a matter emerges during the course of a meeting which relates directly to an item of business under consideration, then a Trustee should immediately declare an interest. The Chair will decide as to whether or not that trustees should withdraw, and may seek further advice.
