Harlands Primary School


The new Articles of Association for Harlands Educational Trust, dated March 2022, state that the Academy Trust shall have the following Trustees:

* up to 12 Trustees appointed under Article 50 (these are general trustees, and will include persons who are able to bring expertise in areas such as legal, finance or premises matters)
* a minimum of 2 parent Trustees
* the headteacher
ie a maximum of 15 in total.

Trustees are normally appointed for a four-year term, though Associate Trustees may be appointed for one year at a time.

In addition, the Trustees can appoint Associate Trustees, usually to fulfill a specific remit, who do not count within the maximum 15 trustees as designated above.  

Should you need to contact any of the Trustees please contact Mrs K Michael, who is available in the School Office (01444 450782) or by contacting clerktogovernors@harlandsedtrust.org.uk
