There is a Local Governing Board for each school within the Trust. The Local Governing Board is a Committee of the Board of Trustees (the Trust) and will decide on the governance functions and delegate 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.
The Local Governing Boards are a full and formal part of the Trust governance structure and will play a key role in supporting the effective operations of the Trust and its policies, help ensure the Trust works as one entity in the interests of all its schools. Each Local Governing Board (LGB) reports to the Trust Board.
