Single Academy Trusts (SATs)

DfE is no longer approving the creation of new SATs, and is often encouraging existing SATs to merge or join an existing MAT.

So – “what is the future for SATs?” is the question.

NGA recently held a governance leadership forum event for those governing and leading single academy trusts as a platform for discussion of the matter.

Click here for a summary (by Michael Barton of NGA) of the issues discussed and outcomes from the discussion.

If you are a Headteacher or Chair of Governors in a SAT, and would like to review any aspect of how your trust might evolve, do please contact me at or on 017514 499238 for a preliminary discussion about how that might be addressed.
