Governance

DEMAT Governance

DEMAT is a charitable company limited by guarantee.  We are regulated by the Department for Education, OFSTED, HMI and others, and our charitable objects are set out in our Articles of Association.  For further information on how DEMAT is funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency please refer to our Master Funding Agreements: MFA 2019, MFA 2015, MFA 2014 and MFA 2013.  Each academy has its own Supplemental Funding Agreement.

The purpose of governance is to provide confident, strategic leadership and to create robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.

DEMAT Scheme of Delegation

The Scheme of Delegation may be found in the Trust Governance Handbook January 2019. This also sets out the lines of responsibility and accountability in the Trust so that roles and responsibilities in the governance and executive structures are clear at a Trust and Local level.

The quality and effectiveness of our governance is pivotal in ensuring that we are successful in delivering our Mission as well as achieving our Vision.
