Good governance is essential to the success of any organisation. The purpose of governance at The Rose Learning Trust is to ensure it achieves its mission by:

  • Setting the ethos, culture and vision
  • Making decisions about policy and strategy
  • Overseeing and scrutinising organisation performance
  • Ensuring organisational accountability

The Rose Learning Trust has three levels of governance, to hold the CEO and Principals to account, and to ensure that the trust operates as a charity and a limited company should do. 


The Members meet on an annual basis. They have an important role to play in overseeing and holding the Trustees to account for the governance arrangements of the trust. 


The Trust Board meets six times a year and manages the business of the trust with a focus on the three core functions of governance:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of its pupils and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the trust and making sure its money is well spent

It is assisted in this work by the audit and risk committee and the education standards committee. These committees check that the trust complies with all relevant legal obligations and regulations, financially, educationally and operationally.

Local Governing Bodies (LGBs)

Local Governing Bodies meet 3 times a year and examine the performance of each academy in detail holding the Headteachers to account.

The Scheme of Delegation sets out which functions will be delegated
