Local Academy Committee

Our Local Academy Committees play a vital role in the life of our schools and the wider Trust. All governance within schools and the wider Trust follow the three pillars of effective governance to provide the best possible outcomes for our stakeholders:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

 The Severn Federation Academy Trust are committed to having a rigorous standard of governance, and everyone involved with governance within the Trust agrees to uphold the Code of Conduct.
