Local Governors

The Trust’s Local Governing Boards (LGB) have oversight of the day-to-day running of their school, carrying the Trust and school’s vision, policies and priorities forward.  Each LGB is responsible for building an understanding of how the school is led and managed, specifically:

Vision, Ethos and Accountability

  • Ensuring the Trust’s Vision and Ethos underpins the work of the school
  • Implementing policies and plans agreed by the Trust Board


  • Scrutinising Educational Excellence, including monitoring school data
  • Holding School Leadership to account for children’s learning and wellbeing
  • Setting aspirational targets for pupil performance and regularly reviewing progress
  • Oversight of the quality of Teaching & Learning with knowledge of strengths and areas for development
  • Overseeing the distribution and effectiveness of the school budget

Parental and Community Engagement 

  • Ensuring the school is engaging meaningfully with parents and carers
  • Building proactive relationships, not only with parents and carers, but also the local community
  • Demonstrating how the views of parents, carers and the local community have influenced decision making
