WHO IS WHO?

ROLE OF THE GOVERNORS

Together with the Senior Leadership Team the governors of the Local Academy Board set the direction for the school and decides how the school budget should be spent.

 

The Local Academy Board makes decisions collectively on matters such as performance targets, school policies and the school’s improvement plan.  It monitors the impact of policies, reports to parents on the school’s achievements and responds to inspection recommendations.

 

The Local Academy Board hears appeals from pupils and staff and considers complaints.  It provides the Senior Leadership Team with support and advice, drawing on the governors' knowledge and experience. Governors ask searching questions and respect the Senior Leadership Team’s position as professional leaders of the school.
