Governors 2023-24


Purpose of the Local Governing Body

The LGB is a committee of the Pinnacle Learning Trust Board and provides focused, strategic governance for the school at local level. It monitors the academy's key performance indicators and acts as a critical friend to the Principal, providing challenge where appropriate. It also plays a key part in representing the views of the academy's stakeholders and is responsible for promoting high standards and educational achievement. 

The governors exercise the responsibilities and duties delegated by the Trust Board as set out in the Trust’s scheme of delegation.


The role of a governor:

Our governors have a wholehearted commitment to the education of children and young people, to the values and ethos of the Trust and to the school. The most important focus for a governor is the needs of children and their education. Governors have a detailed knowledge of the school in order to fulfil the role of providing strategic support and challenge and play a vital role in ensuring that the LGB is connected with, and is aware of the views of, parents, staff, the local community and other stakeholdersSome governors will be given particular roles within the LGB. Most commonly these relate to Safeguarding, Health and Safety and Special Educational Needs.
