Guardians of TEAM Multi-Academy Trust
The National Governance Association in their document titled Academy trusts:the role of members describes them as being 'Guardians of the governance of the trust' (P3). The document also highlights the following:
'Members are essential to the integrity of an academy trust governance structure. They are the last line of defence from failures of governance and failure to uphold the charitable purpose of the organisation. Members must therefore remain informed of trust performance and be clear on how to appropriately interact with the trustee board.'
