Bridge London ILS

Our Governors

The ILS is connected to its community through a local governing body (LGB). The LGB will have clear areas of focus detailed within a formal scheme of delegation setting out its responsibilities once this has been approved by the Board of Directors of the Multi Academy Trust, who are discussing this with the intention that it be agreed by the end of 2017.

Responsibilities
Strategic and financial oversight sits with the Board of the Multi Academy Trust, curriculum development and staff performance management sits with the Head of School, and community/parent engagement and school performance sits with the LGB. This enables the LGB and the school to benefit from shared expertise including the provision of financial and other performance reports that will support their decision making in the day to day running of the school.

The Local Governing Body is directly responsible for:

  • curriculum development
  • prospectus content
  • parent engagement and support
  • local profile and marketing of the school
  • community relations and community cohesion
  • relationships with schools and colleges and creating progression pathways
  • monitoring student progress
  • monitoring safeguarding of young people
  • monitoring health and safety
  • school performance, comparing outcomes for children young people with relevant national standards.


In summary, the LGB is responsible for the curriculum, standards and school improvement; the day to day running of the school including compliance with standard operating procedures/policies and community and parental engagement, including feedback from young people and parents.
