Governance

Dear Parents, Carers and Staff,
 
The Little Way Catholic Educational Trust (LWCET) is governed by the Board of Directors who are responsible for, and oversee, the management and administration of the Trust and all of its academies. The constitution and rules governing how the Board of Directors operates is defined in the Memorandum and Articles of Association. The Directors have overall responsibility and ultimate decision-making authority for all the work of the LWCET and are accountable to external government agencies, including the Charity Commission, the Department for Education and the Education & Skills Funding Agency (including any of their successor bodies) as well as the Bishop of Clifton.
 
The Directors appoint Local Governing Committees (LGC) to oversee the work of individual academies. St. Peter's Catholic Primary School has it's own Local Governing Committee, which is made up of ten governors (6 x foundation governors, 2 x parent governors, 1 x staff governor and the Headteacher).
 
The constitution, membership and proceedings of the LGC is determined by the Directors and the Scheme of Delegation sets this out as well as acknowledging the authority delegated by the Directors to the LGC to run the Academy and fulfil its mission.
 
Local Governance Committees have delegated responsibility for the work of a single academy within the Trust. LGCs delegated remit will be focused on holding the Headteacher to account for the quality of standards and pupil outcomes, meeting the needs of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), ethos, wellbeing and spiritual development, attendance, safeguarding, health and safety and community engagement.
 
As there is a lot to do, sometimes LGCs choose to carry out their work in smaller committees and then feedback to the full Local Governing Committee meeting. St Peter's Catholic Primary School has three such committees; Mission & Ethos, Quality & Standards, and Resources.
 
On an individual level, governors are expected to act like a 'critical friend', recognising and celebrating the achievements of the school, whilst pointing out shortcomings, striking an appropriate balance between support and challenge. They have a role to monitor the progress towards strategic priorities and targets, and that policies are correctly implemented.
