SWMAT governance and reporting structure

South Westmorland MAT governance and reporting structure

At Dallam, the Dallam School Local Advisory Committee has been established which reports to the SWMAT.  Members of the Dallam School Local Advisory Committee exercise the responsibilities and duties delegated by the Trust Board as set out in the Scheme of Delegation.

The Dallam School Local Advisory Committee is the eyes and ears of the Trust Board and the guardian of the school’s ethos and uniqueness. It is responsible for being central to the Dallam School local community and feeding back views and thoughts from students, staff, parents/carers and the community. The Dallam School Local Advisory Committee agrees and monitors the performance of the School Improvement Plan and is integral in helping to drive up standards and overall school performance, providing challenge and input to school leaders.

The school also benefits from the Dallam School Charitable Trust. The Trust owns much of the land and buildings at the Heversham and Milnthorpe sites and provides funding support for the maintenance of the school and key school improvements.
