Local Governing Body Details

Local Governors - What are they?

Local governing bodies are committees of the board of directors and exercise whatever functions and responsibilities have been delegated to them by those directors.  Their functions and responsibilities are set out in a Scheme of Delegation for each academy school as found below

(also available on on the DEMAT web site under the ‘Our Academies’ tab, where each academy school is listed.)

The categories of local governor

Each DEMAT academy school has a local governing body, with seats reserved for the headteacher, the incumbent, staff, parents and General Members.  In most cases, the Diocesan Board of Education, any relevant Parochial Church Council and the Methodist District may nominate to the General Member seats, if there are vacancies.

Some academy schools share a local governing body.
