Individuals who sit on local governing bodies (LGBs) are referred to as ‘local governors’.
This is because trustees can delegate governance functions to the local level. Trustees have complete discretion over what is delegated to each LGB. Details of the constitution and membership of Strategic Governing Bodies are available on member Academy websites.
The Trust Board ethos is that best results will be achieved when each school’s Local Governing Body receives a level of responsibility and autonomy appropriate to its specific circumstances.
