Governance Arrangements

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.

The Chairperson of the Local Governing Body is Mrs Helen Ashcroft who can be contacted via Marlborough Primary School, Tytherington Drive, Macclesfield, Cheshire. SK10 2HJ

At Marlborough, the Local Governing Body holds two meetings per term.  One meeting is focussed on Pupils and the second meeting is focussed on Resources. There are up to thirteen members of the Local Governing Board:
