Governance

Our trust has three levels of governance. Our members are the protectors and custodians of our trust and make sure that our values are respected and upheld. They hold our trustees to account for the governance of our trust. Our trustees set the strategic direction of our trust. They are responsible for compliance with all financial regulations and are accountable to our members and the Department for Education.

The third tier is a local academy board who are accountable to the community in which they serve and are part of our focus on community anchoring, where the academy is at the heart of the community and everyone has shared responsibility to provide a safe, healthy environment for our children to develop. They are tasked with meaningful engagement with local stakeholders and provide our trustees with expert intelligence from the local tier to drive strategy.

The local academy board will look after three academies in its community, Dixons Allerton, Dixons Cottingley and Dixons Manningham academies, to truly understand the needs of the whole community and to ensure we work together in collaboration.

Local academy boards do not deal with complaints (until they reach stage 3) and if you have a concern please contact the academy as per our complaints policy which can be downloaded below.

If you would like to be part of the local academy board please contact the principal of the academy who will provide you with an application pack

The full powers and duties are laid out in our Scheme of Delegation which can be found on our trust website Document Library.
