The Role of Local Governance

Local Governance is essential in our Trust.  Included here are the Local Governance Terms of Reference which outline explicitly the role of our local governors, the frequency with which they meet and the impact that we hope they will have on the life of the school.

There is genuine commitment from the Board of Directors to ensure local governors are empowered to make decisions that support their local school’s improvement journey.  As a Trust we seek to work within the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity.

Local Governance Chairs meet termly with the CSEL to ensure there is clarity around local governance business and the Terms of Reference that were developed during the 2021-22 academic year have been designed to reflect the broader Scheme of Delegation but equally so, empower local governors to challenge and support Headteachers as an effective committee of the Trust Board.
