Local Advisory Board


Welcome to the Governors’ page of the website. School governors have general responsibility to parents and the Department for Education for the effective leadership of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation and policies. All Governors have volunteered to work and support Bedmond Academy and come from a range of backgrounds and bring a variety of skills and knowledge to ensure that the school is continuously improving.

Governors help to decide school policy and share responsibility for the leadership of the school. They advise and support the Principal and staff, working with the school to meet the needs of the children whilst ensuring that all school policies and procedures are in place. They act as a link between the school and the community. Governors receive regular training, updates and support from Aspire Trust.  Whilst the Governing body has leads in particular areas (as highlighted in the table above), all Governors are expected to have knowledge of all areas.

The full LAB meets 6 times a year, however, each Governor will make additional visits to the school for their lead aspects, to visit their classes, to support school events and to attend any meetings with the Academy.
