The Governing Body or LAC (Local Academy Committee) meet every term and act as a critical friend to the school and it’s leadership. Governors play an essential role in supporting the school and the work they do both with the children and within the wider community. The LAC is made up of a mixture of Co-opted, Staff, Trust and Parent Governors. Along with checking school performance data each Governor is also given an area of responsibility that they have a particular interest or strength in. Each term Governors will be invited into school to meet with different members of staff so that they can ask them questions and produce a written report.
As a school we recognise that a diversity of thought, voices and perspectives is essential to good governance and the effective running of any organisation. We regularly collect diversity information from our governors and, depending on current data, can use this to:
- target recruitment to address gaps in experience and diversity
- develop and adapt board practices to ensure full participation
- prioritise training and awareness-raising in identified areas
- address potential ‘blind spots’ through seeking wider advice and perspectives on current and upcoming opportunities, challenges and risks
However, we are unable to publish this information as it would mean that individual members of our governing body are identifiable.
