Bath & Wells Multi-Academy Trust (BWMAT)

Swainswick Church School is an academy within the Bath & Wells Multi-Academy Trust (BWMAT).

The MAT governance structure includes members, and a board of Trustees who are responsible for the strategic direction of the whole trust. The Local Governing Board (LGB) at the individual school level is responsible for the individual scheme. 

For more information on the Swainswick LGB, please see our dedicated page on the Governing Body.

Within the BWMAT, there is a scheme of delegation which clearly sets out what decision making is delegated to the LGB and school, and which decisions remain at the trust level.

“She has really benefited from the different ages mixing, she often talks of the older children.

We feel all the staff know her, which is so special.”
