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
