Education Advisory Body (EAB)

  Governance of the Academy
Delta is a charitable company subject to company law and it is a not for profit organisation.  Delta is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) and the Delta Board of Directors is the legal governing body of the MAT.  Board members act collectively: with the exception of the Chief Executive they do not have individual executive authority.  The Board has delegated to the Chief Executive all responsibility for the day-to–day management of the company.   The Board of Directors (BoD) sets out Delta group strategy and operational policy in key areas which are then applied within and across all its academies through Principals and Education Advisory Bodies (EABs).
