All of our Schools have their own Local Academies Committee ('LAC'), which normally consists of the following persons:

• The (Executive) Headteacher

• The Deputy Headteacher / Head of School

• 2 Parents Governors

• 1 Staff Governor

• The Vicar of the Local Church(es)

• 4 Governors nominated by the School


All LAC governors are APPOINTED by the Board of Directors.


The Chair will normally be drawn from amongst the Local Academies Committee and appointed by the directors.

Every school receives a Schemes of Delegation, which has been approved by the Board of Directors, that details the powers delegated from the Directors to the LAC Governors. The Scheme of Delegation is reviewed annually by the Board of Directors.

The LACs are responsible for holding the School Leadership Team to account over school improvement, pupil support, finances, premises, resources management, religious education and collective worship. The LACs are also responsible for setting the admission criteria for their school, which must be based on distance so that the school continues to serve its local community.

We are sometimes asked to name the Christian values that we think are important. The list below is not exhaustive but is one that schools have found helpful: 

  • Reverence,
  • Thankfulness,
  • Humility,
  • Endurance,
  • Service,
  • Trust,
  • Peace,
  • Forgiveness,
  • Friendship,
  • Justice,
  • Hope,
  • Creation, and
  • Koinonia (Partnership).
