Governors

Local Governing Bodies are an essential element of our governance structure at the Chelmsford Learning Partnership.  

Each school in our trust must have a Local Governing Body (LGB) and the role of the LGB is to: 

  • To support the vision of the Trust 
  • To govern admissions/exclusions/complaints 
  • To monitor and be accountable for standards in the school 
  • Monitoring the educational performance of the school/s and progress towards agreed targets 
  • To act as a critical friend to the school’s Leadership Team 
  • To represent the views of and engage with the local community 
  • To agree a draft budget every year and submit this budget to the trustees 
  • To monitor the performance of the budget 
  • To authorise expenditure up to agreed levels in the Financial Regulations 
  • To ensure that the academy delivers ‘value for money’ 
  • To monitor appointments/appraisals of all academy staff excluding Headteacher/Head of School 
  • To oversee safeguarding procedures 
  • To monitor the School Improvement Plan 
  • To monitor and be accountable for the curriculum provision of the school 
  • To review and determine local policy 
  • To make representations to the Board of Trustees  

We will be recruiting governors to the LGB in the Summer Term of 2020.
