The members meet formally twice a term, as a minimum, with committee meetings and visits to school taking place as required during the term.  They delegate the day-to-day administration of the school to the Headteacher, but are responsible for admissions, appointment of senior staff, the curriculum, the building and matters of finance. Our members strive to forge strong links with the school by accompanying the children on school visits or residentials, as well as visiting them in school. 

Should you wish to contact a member of the Local Academy Board, please direct your enquiry to the school office in the first instance.
