Lubavitch MAT


The Trustees of the MAT work closely with LSGS’s Senior Leadership Team and Staff to develop the vision and aims of the school and academies. They seek to raise standards and achievement through the appropriate use of all available resources.

The Trustees’ responsibilities are to:

  • Provide strategic direction for the work and improvement of the school.
  • Support, monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the school.
  • Ensure accountability for standards and quality of education in the school.

Governance is assessed by OFSTED in its Leadership and Management judgement about the school.

The Trustees of the Lubavitch MAT consists of people from a variety of backgrounds who represent different areas of the school and local community.


As a school we recognise that a diversity of thought, voices and perspectives is essential to good governance and the effective running of any organisation. We regularly collect diversity information from our governors and, depending on current data, can use this to:

  • target recruitment to address gaps in experience and diversity
  • develop and adapt board practices to ensure full participation
  • prioritise training and awareness-raising in identified areas
  • address potential ‘blind spots’ through seeking wider advice and perspectives on current and upcoming opportunities, challenges and risks

However, we are unable to publish this information as it would mean that individual members of our governing body are identifiable.
