We are delighted that STEP Academy Trust was named winner in the Outstanding Governance in a Multi Academy Trust category at the National Governance Association’s (NGA) Outstanding Governance Awards 2021 on Thursday 9 September.
This award reflects the recognition of our collective approach to governance at STEP; judges were impressed by the Board’s solid strategic approach and healthy culture as well as the ongoing reflection about the effectiveness of its practice. They also recognised the Board’s development of our trust-wide Roadmap to Becoming an Anti-Racist Organisation, underlining STEP’s commitment to equality and social justice.
Our thanks go to STEP’s tireless group of volunteer Members, Trustees and Academy Committee members for their support, dedication and civic duty to the staff, children and communities we serve. But also, we couldn’t achieve any of this without the exceptional support of the Governance, Executive and Leadership Teams.
