Local Governing Body

The Local Governing Body promotes the vision, ethos and strategic direction of a particular school within a Multi Academy Trust.  Local governors are a critical friend to the headteacher and hold her to account for the school’s performance. They also oversee the use of resources to ensure money is well spent.
