The Oak Trust

Academy Governance

From 1st October 2017, North Chadderton became part of the Oak Trust.

North Chadderton School is nationally recognised as a centre of excellence and outstanding practice in so many areas.

We are proud of the achievements of all of our students and we know our parents want the school to continue to improve standards and raise achievement even further.  Our ethos and vision is continued with our mission statement "Driven to be outstanding in all that we do".

The Local Advisory Committee members were proud to be recredited for the Govenors Mark in 2017.

Local Advisory Committee

In October 2017 , North Chadderton became a part of the Oak Trust and the Trust Board established Local Advisory Committees for each of the Academies that are members of the trust.

Local Advisory Committee members are accountable to the Trust Board as well as to the communities they serve. Whilst not trustees under charity law, the LAC members are under a duty to act in good faith and in the interests of the Academy and the Trust.

Details of the authorities delegated by the Trust Board to the Local Advisory Committee are set out in the Scheme of Delegation.
