The Local Governing Body of St Columba C. of E. Primary Academy

The Local Governing Body meet as a Full Governing Body each half-term and also meet as Finance and Achievement sub-committees (with delegated powers) each half-term. The Local Governing Body convene Pay and Admissions Committees as required. Local Governors are regular visitors to classrooms and have links with each class and key subject or responsibility leaders in the Academy. The role of the Local Governing Body is to challenge, support and act as a critical friend, in driving forward the strategic development of the Academy, with similar guidance, challenge and support from the Trust Board.  Governing Body minutes are available at the school if you would like to read them - you just need to pop in and speak to the office staff and ask to see the file.
