Local Governing Body

Our Local Governing Body (LGB) meets weekly with our Senior Leadership Team for strategic 'catch up' and corporate decision making. Additionally to this the Local Governing Body meets 3 times a year to assure the highest quality provision, safeguarding and equality of opportunity for all pupils, and effective support and management of staff.

Through formal reviews the Local Governing Body robustly considers school performance.

The Local Governing Body considers:

  • The Academy Principal’s Report – self-evaluation against current OFSTED criteria and any other criteria set by the Local Governing Body or the Trust.
  • Impact of key actions from the Academy Improvement Plan.
  • Monitoring activities undertaken by the academy.
  • Local and contextualised issues.
  • Direction from the Trust Board.
