Our Governors

In our school, DSAT has ultimate statutory accountability, and the trust governing body are partners with them. They support the trust with their duties as local ‘feet on the ground’. The Scheme of Delegation on the DSAT website can provide further context as to the different roles and responsibilities. The Trust Governing Body and DSAT work together to ensure Laughton All Saints' achieves the highest standards possible and continually improves.
