The Local Governing Body (LGB) meets termly. Reports from this meeting are then fed to the Wellsway MAT Trustees who meet termly to discuss MAT-wide issue and scrutinise the performance of all the schools in the MAT.

There is a robust and objective selection process for governors and trustees.  Appointments are skills-based and made by recommendation from the Trust Remuneration and Selection Committee – subject to the completion of a DBS check and declaration form.  Governors are either Parent Governors, Staff Governors or Community Governors.   They are usually appointed for a term of office of 4 years.  In order to ensure good succession planning, however, a term of office for a governor may be varied by the Board of Trustees from between one and four years, subject to a maximum term of office.
