School Monitoring Council

The Saints’ Way MAT is committed to maintaining the unique nature of all of the schools within the Trust and believes this is best achieved by giving a clear mandate to School Monitoring Council's to be the drivers of school improvement. The Trust gives these School Monitoring Council's the freedoms to focus on the challenge and support for the improvements in teaching and learning and the curriculum by ensuring the synergies of belonging to a MAT allow statutory obligations to be dealt with centrally. This, coupled with the defined role of the senior leaders within the schools setting enables the Head of School to deal exclusively with the day-to-day management of the individual schools; the burden of Finances, Resources and  Personnel issues are dealt with by the Principal and the Central Administrative Team. This freedom gives the leader in the school the maximum time and resources to effectively engage with all stakeholders and manage the schools effectively on a day-to-day basis. With a School Improvement Lead working full-time across the schools, this partnership with SMC, Heads of School and staff strive to provide the best for every child in the Trust.
