The development of The Swan School is being managed by a steering group which includes the Chief Executive of RLT, the Chair of RLT a Trustee and a Member of RLT and two co-opted members with educational expertise. This group are directly accountable to the RLT Trust Board, the DfE and the ESFA. The process is also supported by the RLT central team (Finance, operations, HR, premises etc). We also have plans to increase resources over the length of the project to ensure the opening is a success.
The Local Governing Body is currently planned to be appointed / elected in spring 2019 and the make-up and responsibilities of the governing body are planned to be the same as those for other RLT schools – a copy of the current scheme of delegation for schools can be found on www.riverlearningtrust.org/
