REAch2 Governance Charter

REAch2 is a charitable voluntary organisation which relies on the valuable input of a considerable number of non-executive volunteers, supported by an experienced team of staff. Due to the size of the organisation and the number of schools for which it is responsible, coupled with its drive for accountability, it is also a complex organisation with various important elements of governance. 

  • The governance principles of REAch2 recognise the importance of developing relationships with a common purpose and they are about developing processes and structures. The effective governance of the Trust is supported by:

  • Trust members - the guardians of the school

  • Trust board - the Directors / Trustees

  • Trust sub-committees

  • Regional boards and their sub-committees - including Regional Ambassadors

  • Local Governing bodies - the local governors

  • The Executive team

' Exceptional opportunities for learning' - the shared vision and values of REAch2'
