Cheney School joined the River Learning Trust on 1st February 2022, on the dissolution of the Community Schools Alliance Trust (CSAT).

The River Learning Trust (RLT) is a Multi-Academy Trust responsible for a number of schools and a school centred initial teacher training provider (SCITT). We are united by our principles and our commitment to working together to achieve excellence in education. To find out more, visit the RLT website:

Through the RLT Scheme Of Delegation For Schools, the Trust delegates the running of the school to a Local Governing Body, chaired by Jessica Rogers and Claire Edwards. 

The Governing Body is responsible for ensuring that Cheney School is managed in accordance with its ethos and values, for overseeing the appointment and professional development of staff and for setting and reviewing the school’s curriculum. Trustees have the final approval of Governors recommended by the Local Governing Body. The Chairs of Cheney's Local Governing Body are appointed by the other Local Cheney Governors on an annual basis.

If you would like to contact the Co-Chairs, the Governors, or are interested in joining the Governing Body, please email the clerk to the Governors or write to:
Clerk to Governors at Cheney School
Cheney Lane
Oxford, OX3 7QH

You can also email the clerk to the Governors to request copies of the Minutes from Local Governing Body Board meetings.
