Within a Multi Academy Trust, each academy school will usually have its own local governing body (LGB). These have similar status to committees of a maintained governing body and the only powers they have are those delegated to them by the board. This is normally formalised into a scheme of delegation.
The governors of Webheath Academy Primary School are volunteers, committed to ensuring that all the children receive the best education possible. The role of the Governing Board is a strategic one with three key functions:
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent;
- Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
