Proud to be part of Elevate Multi Academy Trust

Governors

Local Governing Body

Meadowside has been part of Elevate Multi Academy Trust from the outset and is happy to be part of the educational vision of the Trust, whilst retaining their own strong identity.  The Trustees have allowed its Academies to retain the same composition for their local governing bodies, which is set out below. 

The three core functions of the local governing board are:

To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

To hold the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the Academy and its children;

To oversee the financial performance of the Academy and make sure its money is well spent.

 

 And to monitor the Ofsted Framework priorities of intent, implementation, impact, behaviour & attitudes, personal development and leadership & management.

Responsibilities:

Together, the Governors are responsible for:

  • Setting aims and targets for the academy and checking the academy’s progress towards attaining these.

  • Monitoring how well the Academy’s policies and plans are working.

  • Accounting for the performance of the Academy and the Local Governing Body.

  • Working with the Head teacher to make sure that teaching at the Academy is effective and good quality and the children are making the best possible progress.

  • Taking general responsibility for the Academy and its budget.

  • Challenging and supporting the senior management team and taking opportunities to show interest in and appreciation of staff and children.

  • Promoting the interests of the Academy and its children in the wider community.

 

Types of Governors

  • Parent Governor

  • Staff Governor

  • Co-opted Governors
