OCMAT offer generic policies for its schools, which are reflected on this website. The individuality of each school’s context means there may be occasions when a school needs to include appendices to the main policy document in line with its own context. As a Trust, we continually review all our policies. Please click on the link above to view OCMAT Policies.
As an Academy Trust, our Articles of Association determine our governance structure. For a copy of this and further information about the Trust's governance, including membership and attendance at governance meetings, Please click HERE
Statutory information is found under membership and under policies.

At Lynsted and Norton Primary School we have a Local Monitoring Council.
It consists of the Headteacher, experienced Governors, a member of staff, a parent and other interested parties.
The chair of our LMC is a Local Leader of Governance. It provides challenge to the Headteacher using the published School Development Plan as a basis for monitoring.
Designated link governors from the LMC meet with accountable leaders to triangulate, challenge and monitor progress.
