School Governance

The governance structure of the Perins Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) officially began operating on 1st September 2017 and is made up of the following groups:

  • Five Members of the MAT
  • A Trustee Board of eight Trustees including the Executive Headteacher (EHT)
  • A Local Governing Body (LGB) at Perins, including elected staff and parent Local Governors
  • A Local Governing Body (LGB) at Sun Hill Junior School (SHJS), including elected staff and parent Local Governors
  • An Audit & Risk Committee
  • A Pay and Performance Management Committee

The Trustees are firmly committed to the idea of partnership with parents. They are clear that this representation allows us to hold the importance of teaching and learning at the forefront of everything that we do as we work together in partnership.

Who is eligible to become a parent member of an LGB? 

  • In general, any parent with a child currently on roll at Perins or SHJS is eligible to become a member of an LGB.
  • If there are more applications than vacancies we will hold an election.
  • There are some restrictions about eligibility: more information is available from the Chair of Trustees on governors@perins.hants.sch.uk

For further information please visit the Department for Education website. If you have any further questions please contact the Chair of Trustees by email.

To contact any of the MAT Members, Trustees or members of the LGB’s, please email governors@perins.hants.sch.uk.
