The Governors of the LGB are responsible to the Trust for supporting the day-to-day running of the Academy. The LGB is not independent of the Trust. The Chair of the LGB is a Trust nominee and the Head of the Academy is an ex-officio member of the Governing Committee.
Each LGB has a small number of governing sub committees, including a Disciplinary and Appeals Committee (constituted as required).
Furthermore, each governor is linked to a member of the SLT both as ‘critical friend’ and as a Link Governor. Each Link (Governor/SLT) is responsible for one or more elements of the self-evaluation record (SEF). The governors challenge the SLT members to provide secure evidence for the SEF and support the SLT member in reaching the judgements for the SEF.
Training of the governing body in the development of self-evaluation is the focus of governor CPD on an annual basis.
A list of our current Local Governing Body members, together with any non-confidential documents, can be found on our Governors' Pen Portrait page.
