Local Academy Board (Governance)

Local Academy Board

The Local Academy Board (LAB) have a central role to play in the leadership of the school. They have legal powers and responsibilities in relation to the school and can only act together. They meet at least once a term. In particular, the DHMAT Local Academy Boards (LABs) have an important role to play in promoting high standards and upholding the Christian distinctiveness of their academy. Our academy LAB must ensure that pupils are attending a successful academy which provides them with a good education and supports their well-being. There is a DHMAT scheme of delegation outlining the responsibilities of the LAB.

  • Patricia Pearce                         Co-opted Local Academy Board Member (Chair)
