LAAT Local Governance - Academy Committee

LAAT Local Governance - Academy Committee

 

Following a Trust-wide consultation in which proposals were put forward to change the way local governance operates within LAAT, a single model of governance was brought into effect from the 1st September 2022

 

Brown's C of E Primary School now operates it governance as an Academy Committee.

 

The Scheme of Delegation allows the Academy Committee to:

  • help the Board of Directors fulfil its core functions by:
    • Helping shape a vision for the school appropriate to it foundation
    • promoting the academies place in its community
    • helping the Board of Directors have the understanding it needs to improve outcomes for all pupils
    • helping the Board of Directors have the understanding it needs to hold the CEO to account.
  • help the CEO and school leader fulfil their roles by:
    • supporting and challenging the school's senior leader to improve certain aspects of the academy
    • providing external input to processes
    • helping the School's senior leader to understand the local community, including commerce and industry
    • building links with the wider local community including parents
  • looks at the school through the lens of the child:
    • seeking to answer on behalf of the board and executive: "what it is like to attend this School?"

 

In areas of finance and school standards, the Academy Committee will be aware of the position of the school through the QA reports (6 per year), information from the Headteacher, Signatures of Risk documents (termly) and the annual LAAT meeting.

 

Academy Committees will not be expected to monitor these as this is done by skilled School Effectiveness Advisers, in conjunction with peer visits.
