Local Governing Body (LGB)

Who Are We?

The LGB has between 7-10 governors, the majority of whom are non-staff members appointed by the Delta Education Board of Trustees. Alongside this, the LGB also requires two elected parents and two elected staff members. The Chair of the LGB is appointed by the Trust Board. All governors are volunteers and bring a wide range of expertise and experience to the role.


What do we do?

The LGB works in close partnership with the Headteacher and the Trust Board to ensure that the school is well run and promotes high standards of achievement and outcomes for all students. The powers delegated to the LGB depends on the circumstances of each academy within the Trust. The principle determining delegated powers is that of earned autonomy. The performance, capacity and financial security of the academy is reviewed each term by the Board of Trustees.

Four full LGB meetings are held each academic year. Following these, the Headteacher and Chair of the LGB also attend the Board of Trustees meeting to share the Headteacher’s report and feedback on school development.
