A multi-academy trust board of trustees is accountable for all decisions taken in the trust. It may delegate operational matters to executive leaders and governance functions to committees and local governing bodies, or in some cases to individuals. Guidance can be found in the Governance Handbook available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/governance-handbook.
