The CEO, Katy Kent, is not a named member of the LGB as per the approved Scheme of Delegation but regularly attends meetings as required in her capacity as CEO.


The Local Governing Board deals with all operational matters; strategic issues are considered by the Trust Board.

The only LGB sub-committee in operation is the Governors' Pay Committee which will consist of any three non-staff Governors without a declaration of interest. The Pay Committee will agree a chair for the meeting. They will consider matters relating to the pay of school staff (not including the Headteacher or Assistant Head). Trust staff pay matters (those relating to the CEO and the Trust Director of Finance and Operations) and leadership pay matters (HT) are considered by the Directors’ Pay Committee and is therefore not a matter for the LGB.

All our Governors have voting rights.
