School Governors Login School Governors The Key Support

Horncastle Education Trust believes that the governors of each Trust School are best able to meet and understand the needs of their school and the local community they belong to and that governance should be as close as possible to the point of impact of decision-making.  The structure of the Local Governing Bodies (LGBs) are set out in the Trust Scheme of Delegation. 

As a key principle of the Horncastle Education Trust is that we recognise that LGBs play a critical role to ensure each school delivers quality performance and upholds the values our educational community represents.  LGBs know their school best and are an integral partner to our Trust’s continued improvement.  The Trust Board will have responsibility for establishing LGBs, appointing the Chair, ensuring parents governors are appointed and will determine what will be delegated.

Typically, responsibilities will include:

  • Recruitment of staff, with shared responsibility for recruitment of a Headteacher.

  • Building an understanding of how the school is led and managed.

Monitoring whether the school is:

  • Working within agreed policies.

  • Meeting the agreed targets.

  • Managing its finances well.

  • Reporting to the Trust Board.

  • Delivering on its curriculum objectives to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which meets the needs of its pupils.

  • Ensuring highly effective communication with parents, the wider community and key stakeholders.
