St Andrew’s is now a member of the Mid-Trent Multi Academy Trust. This means there is a board of Trustees governing the schools in the Mid-Trent Multi Academy Trust. Many duties of the  Trust have been delegated to each Trust school. Therefore, most of the governance is carried out by a Local Governing Body.

St Andrew’s Local Governing Body’s Vision

 

We believe in Christian values which underpins everything we do.

We believe every child deserves the best learning and nurturing.
