Multi Academy Trust and Local Governing Body


Sutton Courtenay Church of England Primary School joined the Ridgeway Education Trust (RET) on 1 April 2019 and joins Didcot Girls' School and St Birinus in the Multi Academy Trust (MAT). 


Ridgeway Education Trust is run by a Board of Directors which has ultimate responsibility for running each academy within its structure and for setting the vision for schools within the MAT. You can find out more about Governance in the Trust by clicking this link. Each school retains its own Local Governing Body which includes representatives from staff, parents and members of the local community appointed for their particular skills and experience. Directors and Governors are appointed for a term of four years.

The Local Governing Body meets as a whole at least three times a year. You can find key documents below.
