As of the 1st January 2018 the school became part of the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust. At this point, the governing body, in its existing format ceased to exist. A new governing board is currently in the process of being formed. This governing board will oversee three schools, including North Tawton, who have formed a hub as part of the newly formed MAT. The two other schools in the hub are South Tawton and Chagford. The three schools will have one executive headteacher (this role is currently in the recruitment stage) and each school will have its own head of school.
The new governing board will have responsibility for all three schools and will work with the executive head and three heads of school. It is hoped that the new governing board will be in place by February. In the meantime the trustees of the MAT are responsible for the school
Details of the new governing board and minutes of future meetings will be posted on this page in due course. In the meantime, any questions regarding governance of the school should be directed to the trustees of the MAT.
