What is the role of the Local Advisory Board?

The role of the Local Advisory Board is to secure school improvement through effective and accountable governance, challenge and support.

The Local Advisory Board monitors our key performance indicators and acts as a critical friend to the Head Teacher and the senior leadership team, providing challenge and support where appropriate. Our role is to facilitate school improvement at a local level. 

A Local Governing Body has a strategic role in the development of the school but does not become involved in day-to-day  management issues – that is the role of the Head Teacher.

The role can be varied and involve recruitment of staff,  meeting external stakeholders, working with other schools and ultimately ensuring children in our setting are given the support they need to achieve their full potential.

 

  To be a local governor you need to:
  •  Attend a range of training 
  •  Attend 6 meetings per year
  •  Complete a minimum of 3 school visits per year
  •  Be enthusiastic
  •  Maintain confidentiality
  •  Ask challenging questions
  •  Be curious.

 

 The local governors at Woodfield are united in their commitment to making a positive contribution to your child's education.
