Wise Owl Trust is a Muti-Academy Trust (Mat) with four members: Graham Larder, Ian Chadwick, Dave Savage and Emma Foster. Each board member offers a range of skills and experience to support the quality of the not for profit business management of the trust, whilst ensuring the improvement of education and life opportunities for all pupils is at the core of its decision making.
The Trust (itself accountable to DfE) is the ultimate body to whom schools are directly accountable and it delegates autonomy to each Local Governing Body (LGB) according to the Scheme of Delegation. Responsibilities are retained centrally in schools in need of intensive support.
The CEO and Executive Principal are delegated the responsibility of developing the strategic direction of the Trust, monitoring and evaluating it in practice.
