The role of the Local Governing Body
The local governing body will play a crucial role in both supporting and challenging the Academy through their role as critical friend to the senior leadership team. Governing bodies that are able to fulfil this role are a vital component in demonstrating the effective leadership of the Academy and through their work governors must know if all the pupils at the Academy are making progress at least at the level that is expected of them.
Discussion will take place with the existing school governing body on the right membership, size and structure for the new academy local governing body using our model structure.
Chris Hilliard and Simon Peck are CAT Associates who support our governing bodies in their regions. Find out more about Chris and Simon by clicking here
