What do Governors do?


The Local Governing Body (LGB) holds meetings during the year in which they help to support the school, its leadership, and pupils, whilst challenging to make sure that everyone achieves as much progress as they can and should.


Our school’s LGB is made up of four trust-appointed members, who are volunteers, two parents, two staff, and the Headteacher. They can invite other members of staff into meetings to discuss current issues.

 They must declare that they are working for the school in an open and honest way so fill in a declaration of interests form annually, and declarations of interest is an item on every LGB meeting agenda.

The LGB also works alongside a cluster board where cluster-wide issues are discussed. The Cluster Board is made up of volunteers, just like an LGB, Headteachers and Chairs of Governors. There is also a central team with officers and business partners who specialise in providing support in areas such as finance, HR, health and safety, estates, and governance.


All Reach2 schools share the same governance structure and you can find information about the trust on the REAch2 website at www.reach2.org. Information on how Governance is organised can be found on the Trust’s website www.reach2.org/governance, including the Articles of Association, the Master Funding Agreement and all the documents which relate to how the Trust was founded and how it runs today.  You can also find details of who our trustees are.
