Local Governing Body

Local Governing Body 

The Bright Futures Educational Trust is accountable for the running of South Shore Academy. The Trust has decided to have Local Governing Bodies to discharge responsibilities locally for monitoring progress, finance and health and safety.  

Local governors have responsibility for the strategic vision of the academy, aligned to the overall vision and values of the Bright Futures Educational Trust (BFET). The local governing body acts collectively to support the Principal and staff in achieving the vision and holds the Principal to account for the outcomes achieved and the safety and well-being of everyone at the Academy. 

The Local Governing Body contributes to the appointment of the Principal and monitors progress on the academy’s budget that is agreed in advance with BFET. The most important role of the local governing body is monitoring progress against the academy development plan and checking that strategies to improve outcomes for young people are effective. Ultimately, the local governing body supports the academy and BFET in achieving the very best outcomes for all the children and families that we serve at South Shore. 

The full Local Governing Body meets on a regular basis, usually once each half term and generally for no more than two hours. 

Meetings are focused on the progress that the Academy is making and the Principal provides a general report, including regular pupil progress data. The Local Governing Body may well receive reports from sub-committees and will formally adopt the Trust-wide policies which underpin the running of South Shore Academy.
