The Trinity School Local Governing Body

The Trinity School Local Governing Body is a committee of the Newbury Academy Trust Board of Trustees.

Whilst the Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for the quality of education in the Newbury Academy Trust and for ensuring the Trust achieves its targets, it delegates some responsibilities to the Trinity School LGB. The LGB has two strategic functions delegated to it:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of Trinity School.
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.

The Trusts ‘Scheme of Delegation’ sets out the framework under which the Trust is governed and managed to ensure it meets its statutory obligations. It details the working relationship between the Members, Trustees, Local Governing Bodies (LGB’s) and the Senior Leadership Team. The Scheme of Delegation is published on the NAT website.

The Trinity School LGB is made up of elected and appointed local governors. It includes two elected parent governors, an elected member of staff, and community governors appointed by the Trustees. The Trustees appoint the LGB Chair.

The LGB meets four times a year to a timetable set by the Trustees.
