LGB/Governors

Local Governing Board

As an Academy governance in the school is undertaken by a Local Governing Board (LGB) which is directly accountable to the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust and will report at least 6 times a year to their Board.

 The main responsibilities of the LGB are:

  • To  establish the strategic direction of the school
  • To ensure high standards of achievement for all pupils
  • To maintain the Christian ethos and distinctiveness of the school

The majority of members are appointed by the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust, with the exception of 2 parent members and 1 staff member who are elected by their peers.  The LGB chair is appointed by the Trust board, and the LGB elect a vice chair annually.  The key skills and abilities sought of LGB members are:

  • An ability and desire to set the Christian ethos within the school
  • Analytical skills and the ability to understand and question written and numerical information
  • The ability to establish good working relationships with all stakeholders including Board Members, DSAT, staff at all levels within school, parents and the wider community
  • The ability to carry out monitoring and evaluation of the work of the school
  • Strong communication skills including listening

The Clerk to the Local Governing Board is Emma Marsh, and the Chair is Gareth Coomber who may be contacted via the St Bartholomew's Primary Academy address.

 

The LGB as a whole is required to meet 6 times per year to receive a detailed report from the Headteacher and minutes of those meetings are sent to the Trust Board.

 

At St Bartholomew's in addition LGB members will aim to visit for up to a whole day 3 times a year to meet with children and staff to gain a fuller understanding of the work in school.  Other meetings within school by LGB members have a focus on either 'Resources' or 'teaching and Learning'.
