Local Governing Bodies

There is a Local Governing Body for each school within the Trust. The Local Governing Body is a Committee of the Board of Trustees and has delegated decision making powers in accordance with the Trust Scheme of Delegation. It is the Board of Trustees, however, that in all cases remains accountable in law.

Responsibilities include:

  • Building an understanding of how the school is led and managed
  • Monitoring whether the school is:
    1. Working within agreed policies
    2. Meeting statutory requirements
    3. Is meeting the agreed targets
    4. Managing its finances well
  • Engaging with stakeholders
  • Reporting to the board

Being a governor requires a commitment to the school and to the vision and ethos of the Trust. For more information about becoming a governor for the Ted Wragg Multi-Academy Trust, please contact us.
