Our Local Academy council

 

The role of Local Academy Councils

Local governance is delivered through Local Academy Councils.

The Trust Board has delegated specific governance oversight functions (through the Scheme of Delegation) to Local Academy Councils. 

Councils meet at least 4 times every academic year (September, December, March and July) and are focused on ensuring the academy’s School Development Plan and performance is progressing, they have a line of communication with the Trust Board through its sub-committees. The LAC are also kept informed of wider academy issues including safeguarding, finance, estates and policy compliance (where defined within the SDP).

Local Academy Councils perform a key role in ensuring that our academies are providing the best possible education for every child, year in, year out.

Each LAC consists of a Chair, Vice Chair, Executive Headteacher (or Headteacher), Parent Elected Councillors and Trust Appointed Councillors.
