Our members meet twice a year and their key role is holding the Trust to account.
At the heart of YCAT are the trustees who are the custodians of YCAT’S vision, values and are responsible for planning the trust’s strategic direction.
The members and trustees have a wealth of experience from public service and the wider business world and many have been recruited through the Academy Ambassador Programme.
In YCAT the local governing bodies have a vital role in leading their school, ensuring children receive a safe and high quality education that meets the needs of all children and their local community. The trust's scheme of delegation bestows a high level of autonomy on local governing bodies who are the important drivers in sustaining school improvement.
