Local Governing Bodies

Each of our Academies have their own Local Governing Body.  Each Local Governing Body has a set constitution, governing the types of members and the numbers of members in each category.  The Local Governing Body in most cases is largely made up of the same people who formed the Governing Body prior to conversion to Academy Status.  Our Local Governing Bodies look after the day to day aspects of running the school, holding leaders to account for performance, progress and attainment.  At local level we have representation from staff, parents, the wider community and local councillors.

Each Local Governing Body operates under delegated powers, assigned to them by the Trust Board and has their own Chairperson, elected by peers from the Local Governing Body.

The main task assigned to our Local Governing Bodies is to drive forward attainment and progress within our schools.
