Welcome and thank you for visiting the governance page of our school website. On 1st April 2018 we became a member of the Learning Academies Trust. The Learning Academies Trust is a charitable company limited by guarantee and is registered at Companies House.
The Learning Academies Trust is run by a Board of Directors.
The role of Directors:
Directors have been appointed because of the range of skills and expertise they can bring to help realise the Learning Academies Trust’s vision and values and enhance the effective strategic leadership and management. Directors are responsible for the governance of the schools in the Trust.
The Board of Trustees is the accountable body for the performance of all schools within the MAT and as such must:
• Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
• Hold the senior staff to account for the educational performance of the schools and their pupils, and the performance
management of staff
• Oversee the financial performance of the MAT and make sure its money is well spent
Local Advisory Boards
The Local Advisory Board’s role is to understand how the school is led and managed, acting as the eyes and ears of the school and its community and have a role in influencing decision making. The Local Advisory Board will secure school improvement through effective and accountable governance, challenge and support.
The LAB will use its detailed knowledge and engagement with stakeholders to ensure that their school is being well served by the executive leadership, and has direct access to the board if there are concerns.
