Local Governing Bodies

The Local Governing Bodies (LGB) of our Academies play a crucial role in both supporting and challenging the Academy, in particular the Senior Leadership Team. The ability of a LGB to fulfil this role is a vital component in demonstrating the effective leadership of the Academy and governors must know that all pupils/students at the Academy are making progress at least at the rate that is expected of them.

 

The Local Governing Body, in conjunction with the Board of Trustees, are responsible for (amongst other things):

  • Acting always in accordance with the guidelines as agreed by the Board of Trustees;
  • Shaping the strategic direction of the Academy and having a central and significant role in its leadership;
  • Holding a shared vision for the Academy which is clear, understood and well communicated to staff, parents/carers, pupils, and students and reflects the fundamental values and objectives of the Trust;
  • Having a clear understanding of the strengths and strategic priorities for the Academy and ensure that an appropriate plan is in place and implemented effectively;
  • Engaging effectively with parents/carers, pupils, students, and staff and are to be well informed about their views and use this to inform strategic priorities for development planning;
  • Focusing on raising standards and promoting the personal development and well-being of all learners; and
  • Ensuring they have a good understanding of the barriers to learning, including attendance and behaviour issues and what the Academy is doing to overcome these.

 

Our Director of Governance is Mr Neil Longstaff.
