Responsibilities of our Local Governance Committee

Our Local Governance Committee (LGC) are responsible for providing support and challenge to our school's vision, ethos, curriculum, standards and overall pupil experience. LGCs have the best interests of the school and the local community at their heart.  At Ludwell Primary,  there is a well established and supportive governing committee that is committed to improvement and the comittee make significant personal contributions to the school in terms of both time and effort.

The core functions of our Local Governance Committee are:
1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school
2. Holding the Head to account for the educational performance of the school
and its pupils
3. Providing support to monitor school expenditure

Governors need to be aware of the progress the school is making through regular reviews and discussion. They also need to be aware of the challenges that the leadership is facing and of the measures being taken to meet these challenges.
Support and challenge are crucial to identify and mitigate risks and also to enable the flow of reliable information and intelligence about the school’s operation and performance within Pickwick Academy Trust
