Academy Advisory Body

All academies within the Trust are governed by the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust Board and Members. The L.E.A.D. Academy Trust governance structure establishes clear lines of accountability, overview and scrutiny at three levels: The L.E.A.D. Academy Trust Members; the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust Board and its Committees; and the Academy Advisory Bodies (AABs).

The AAB meets formally three times each year (termly) and also meets informally each term through engagement meetings. The Trusts scheme of delegation, AAB terms of reference and articles of association can be accessed by the clicking the following link https://www.leadacademytrust.co.uk/about-us/governance. These key documents set out the function and role of the AAB.

Please find below details about this academy’s AAB membership, including the names and terms of appointment for each member.
