Tapton School is the sponsor school for Tapton School Academy Trust. The Trust Board is responsible for all of the schools within the Trust and determines the mission, vision and Trust improvement strategy. Local context and community links are provided by our Local Governing Board. 

Our Local Governing Board consists of representatives from staff, parents/carers and the wider community. It provides support and challenge to senior leaders at the school, whilst reviewing and monitoring areas for which it has delegated responsibility from the Trust Board. 

Further information about the Trust governance structure and the role of the Local Governing Board is available on the Trust website. Here you will also find statutory information including appointment details, register of interests and attendance at meetings:
