Outstanding Achievement for All

Governance at Silverdale MAT

Welcome to Silverdale Multi-Academy Trust's governance page which contains statutory information about our current members, directors and governors, alongside information for prospective trustees about why you should join the team and what it involves.

Latest news from Silverdale MAT

Silverdale MAT is providing interim leadership support to Westfield school in Sheffield, following the departure of their headteacher in March 2017 and the publication of their Ofsted report for the February 2017 inspection.

You can see the report and our Executive Headteacher's comment here.

At the same time Westfield is consulting its community about joining Silverdale MAT in the coming year. 

The role of a MAT Director/Trustee or School Governor

Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards.  The role of the MAT Board is absolutely key to the effectiveness and strategic direction of the MAT, as are the school Governing Bodies to the individual school communities within the MAT. Directors and School Governors provide strategic leadership and accountability, for more details visit the National Governor’s Association website.

We publish details of any vacancies on our website, if you wish to register your interest or discuss what being a governor within Silverdale MAT entails, please contact us using the details below or email: ChairofGovernors@silverdale.sheffield.sch.uk
