Governance: School Trust

Free schools, like Academies, are governed by a not-for-profit trust, in this case the RET Becket Keys CofE Free School Trust. The RET Becket Keys CofE Free School Trust is a sub-trust of RET. The Trust members appoint Directors to govern the school. This group of directors operates in very much the same way as a maintained school governing body and take responsibility for the strategic leadership, management and accountability of the school. The school's Headteacher and senior leadership team report to them and their sub-committees on a termly basis. The majority of the trust are practising communicant Christians.  

More information about the Governance structure can be found in the Becket Keys School Governing Body Standing Orders and the RET Scheme of Delegation.
