The Role Of Local Governing Boards (LGB)

The Academy Head Teachers along with their Senior Management Teams and respective LGBs and are responsible for the day to day operation of each Academy.

The Concordia Trust recognises the important role that Local Governing Boards play in effectively managing day to day roles and responsibilities within each Academy. The local information that the LGB holds is imperative to supporting the local community and responding to issues that individual academies may face from time to time.

The Scheme of Delegation describes the framework of responsibilities and how they are delegated and distributed between the Members, the Board of Directors and LGBs. Each Academy is afforded a good degree of autonomy in order to maintain its local character. Although the Board of Directors is ultimately accountable for Concordia as a whole, each LGB retains responsibility for: 

  • Health and Safety

  • Safeguarding

  • Teaching and Learning

  • Pupil Outcomes

  • Pupil Attendance

  • Managing complaints

  • Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

  • Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

  • Sports Funding

  • Staff wellbeing and management of workload

  • Approve residential and adventurous school trips

  • Approve local school policies
