Local Governing Body

The three core functions for governance in all academies are:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Executive Leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Primary responsibility for these functions is held by the DNEAT Board of Trustees, but it delegates responsibilities to the Local Governing Body (LGB) of each academy via a document called a Scheme of Delegation.

Governors are welcome to come in to the schools without appointment during these weeks to monitor a different focus each time and then present to governors at the next meeting. Governors are also welcome to come in at any time but please make an appointment to ensure that there are not a lot of other visitors already in school.
