As per our Christ Church CofE Multi-Academy Trust Articles of Association and Scheme of Delegation, each school within the Christ Church CofE Multi Academy Trust has its own Local Academy Committee (LAC), which must have a minimum of 2 parent governors in its membership.
Local Academy Committee's have powers and responsibility delegated to them by the Trust Board of Directors and from the Chief Executive Officer, so that those people closest to a school have the prerogative to govern effectively.
We strongly believe that excellent schools have excellent leadership and management from within, and a key component of this is governance.
The Trust has a duty to ensure that it enables excellent leadership in each of our schools through empowerment and support.
The Christ Church C of E MAT Governance Handbook includes the terms of reference for Local Academy Committee and outlines the code of conduct for governors.
