ACES Academies Trust

Local ​Governing Committee

The Local Governing Committee

The responsible authority of Godmanchester Bridge Academy is the board of trustees of The ACES Academies Trust. Responsibilities are delegated to the Local Governing Committee in line with the Trust Scheme of Delegation.

Our LGC is made up of three types of governor: staff elected, parent elected and community governors. 

The LGC must have a good balance of experience and the skills required to monitor and support a school's performance and to make evidence-based strategic decisions. The LGC act in the following ways: 

  • Together with the Headteacher, they are responsible for making sure our school provides good quality education.
  • They provide challenge and support to the Headteacher and the Leadership team, drawing on their knowledge and experience outside of the school environment.
  • They report on school achievements and respond to inspection recommendations.
  • They hear appeals from pupils and staff and consider complaints.
  • They ask searching questions and act as a “critical friend” to the school leadership team.
