The SEAT Board of Directors is accountable for the governance and performance of each of the academies and South Essex Academy Trust as a whole. There is no scheme of delegation as the Directors of SEAT take full accountability and responsibility for the performance of each academy.
The Board is comprised of six non-executive Directors and one ex officio Director. The non-executive Directors are all volunteers who are recruited for their leadership experience within a range of sectors in order to ensure a diverse and balanced skillset on the Board. The ex officio Director is the Executive Headteacher.
The Chair of the Board is Mike Simmonds (firstname.lastname@example.org). He can also be contacted at:
Mike Simmonds, c/o South Essex Academy Trust Office, Westwood Academy, Beresford Close, Hadleigh, Essex SS7 2SU.
