Local Advisory Board
The Trust Board provides guidance on governance to all academies, but has been supported by the development of sub-committees at academy level known as Local Advisory Boards (LAB).
At Broomfield Primary School the LAB meets 4 times a year with no additional sub-committees unless needed. Not all curriculum areas have a designated Governor and areas are linked to the School Development Plan. It is expected that all Governors have an overview of all areas of the school including maths and English.
Governors have a strong focus on 3 core strategic functions:
Ensuring a clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
