Introduction

Sneyd Academy is one of several schools who are part of a Multi Academy Trust called the Alpha Academies Trust. Alpha Academies Trust was created to establish a network of schools in the City of Stoke-on-Trent that provide excellent academic tuition and outstanding vocational experiences for young people.
The Alpha Academies Trust holds ultimate responsibility for all statutory obligations, accountability and decisions regarding the running of each individual academy in the Trust. However, the Alpha Academies Trust delegates some of the operational decisions to local governing bodies (LGBs) to enable a more localised and focused control, though it retains legal responsibility for standards across all academies in the multi academy trust. It gives due regard to any recommendations and guidance received from the LGBs and recognises their valuable contribution. Further information on the Alpha Academies Trust can be found at the following link:

What does the Local Governing Body do?

Although the LGBs are constituted in an advisory capacity to the
Alpha Academies Trust Board of Directors, they play a vital and fundamental role of raising attainment and achievement in each academy through:

  • Monitoring the academic performance of the academy – including critical and detailed analysis of data. Questioning and challenge are crucial to ongoing improvements
  • Holding managers to account
  • Supporting academy students and staff

How often does the Local Governing Body meet?

The local governing body generally meets four times per academic year to monitor the academy’s performance. A small number of additional meetings may also be held to review specific areas in the academy, if required.
