The Governors

Our Astley LGB constitution is x12 Governors made up of:-

  • x1 Headteacher
  • x1 Staff
  • x3 Parent Governors
  • x7 Trust Governors

We currently have x 3 Trust Governor and 1 x Parent Governor vacancies.

Synergy Trust maintains control over finance, staffing and premises but has delegated many areas to LGB's which include election of governors and oversight of teaching and learning.

The LGB meets every half term. All business is transacted through the LGB  where all major decisions are agreed. However, individual governors take on  specific roles that cover both the statutory requirements and other areas that the governors have agreed should be monitored, which include:

Safeguarding
