The Local Governing Body

We have committed and enthusiastic governors on our Local Governing Body (LGB), who work effectively in partnership with the school leadership team.  Governors meet regularly to review the leadership and management of the school and take a strategic lead in school development. Governors also take a lead in monitoring and challenging the school leadership team on specific areas and make regular visits to the school on this basis.

As part of the Vale Academy Trust (VAT), the LGB works under a Scheme of Delegation from the VAT Directors and Members and represents the school on various VAT Committees.

The most recent minutes from LGB meetings are held in the school office and posted on the school notice board. Parents and carers should feel free to contact Governors to discuss school matters if they wish to do so; contact details are available from the school office.
