Belleville Wix Academy is part of the Quality First Education (Q1E) Trust.
The Q1E Trust is a primary multi academy trust (MAT). This is a single entity which has responsibility for a number of schools. It is a formal partnership arrangement which is increasingly encouraged by the government. The school receives most of its funding through the Trust, and all staff in the school are employed by the Trust.
The Q1E Trust has ultimate responsibility for the performance and governance of the school, i.e. ensuring that it is well-run and delivering good outcomes. The Trust has a Board of Trustees who oversee performance and make strategic decisions. The school also has a local governing body, to whom certain roles and decisions are delegated.
