The role of a Locality Committee (LC) is an important one. It is to provide focused governance at a local level and it is the intention of The Trust that LCs will have the highest level of autonomy appropriate to their Academy School. The LC monitors the Academy’s development plan and key performance indicators. It acts as a critical friend to the Academy Head and Senior Leadership Team, offering challenge and support.
The LC carries out its duties on behalf of the Board of Trustees in accordance with policies determined by the Trust Board. The act of delegation from the Trust Board to LCs is a delegation of powers and duties and not a delegation of responsibilities. The LC will work closely with the Executive Leadership Team and will implement any advice or recommendations made.
