Governance Structure

Our school part of Pontefract Academies Trust (PAT).

The PAT was created under the provisions of the Academies Act 2010, as amended by the Education Act 2011. Its structure of governance is constituted under the Articles of Association. The Trust is an exempt charity by virtue of the Charities Act 2011.

The Funding Agreement between the Department for Education (DfE) and the Trust sets out the terms and conditions on which grant is made. The Trust Board is responsible for ensuring that the conditions of grant are met. As part of this process the Trust is required to have in place appropriate arrangements for sound governance, financial management, securing value for money and accounting, and for using public funds for the purposes for which they were intended by Parliament.

This Trust Board is accountable in law for all decisions about its schools. This does not mean the Trust Board is required to make all the decisions itself. Some decisions can be, and are delegated, including to School Governance Committees, delegated officers, and other Trust Board established committees. The Governance Policy and Scheme of Delegation sets out the framework which the Trust Board has approved and is summarised below:

Carleton Park Primary School School Governance Committee (SGC)

The Carleton Park Primary School SGC is a sub-committee of the Trust Board and has various responsibilities delegated to it through the Pontefract Academies Trust Governance Policy and Scheme of Delegation.

The School Governance Committee of Carleton Park Primary School is currently made up of:
