Governors (LAB)

LOCAL Advisory Board

Local Advisory Boards are vitally important in ensuring the good governance of each academy and are constituted to provide local scrutiny and challenge for Head Teachers and Principals within the individual academies.

According to the NGA latest report here, the general trend in MATs is that the traditional local governing bodies are changing to local advisory boards as a result of the role of MAT Trustees. The functions of the local board are focused on the importance of monitoring educational standards and school life as well as community engagement and accountability to stakeholders. “A number of trusts are moving the local tier into a specific community or stakeholder engagement role. This is a valid move, as those at academy level often have a strong connection to their individual school and are part of the local community. As such, they volunteer at school level because they want to put something back into the community and help improve education for local children”, NGA June 2019

The LAB exercises the powers and responsibilities delegated to them by the Trust Board. Details of these powers and responsibilities are set out in the Scheme of Delegation and other key policies.
