DSAMAT is a Church of England Multi-Academy Trust. Members are appointed by the Diocese’s Umbrella Trust, the Diocese of St Albans Educational Trust, an appointing body that recruits and appoints Members to Church of England Academies in the Diocese.
Members have strategic oversight for the work of the Trust, include representatives from the Diocesan Board of Finance and Diocesan Board of Education and reflect the range of skills required to oversee an Academy Trust.
Trustees, also known as Directors, of the Trust are appointed by the Members and are responsible for the day-to-day running of the Trust. The academy schools are accountable to the Directors who make strategic decisions impacting them.

Regional Hub Boards and Governing Bodies
Individual academies are governed at a local level either by their own Local Governing Body (LGB), or by a Regional Hub Board (RHB). RHBs govern a number of academies within a geographical footprint. RHBs and LGBs have the same level of delegated responsibility from the Directors. Currently, Manshead C of E Academy has its own LGB. The Eastern RHB is responsible for Roxton, Caldecote and Churchfield Academies. Our Western RHB is responsible for Totternhoe, Kensworth and Thomas Whitehead Academies.
