Local Governing Body

Governance

Wye School is part of United Learning, a group of schools in both the public and private sectors, working together for mutual benefit. United Learning aims to provide excellent education to children and young people; its mission is to bring out 'the best in everyone' – students, staff, parents and the wider community. The Group Chief Executive is Jon Coles and the Chairman of United Learning Trust, the trust legally responsible for United Learning Academies, of which Wye School is one, is Nigel Robson.

Whilst the legal governance of Wye School rests with The United Learning Trust, many areas of governance responsibility are delegated to a Local Governing Body

Governance

Wye School is a part of United Learning whose Trustees hold the ultimate responsibility for the governance of each United Learning school.

The Department for Education’s governance handbook identifies the essentials of effective governance as follows:

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

United Learning’s Trustees delegate certain key roles and responsibilities to the school’s Local Governing Body (LGB) and these are set out clearly in Appendix 4 to the United Learning LGB Members Handbook, which can be seen on the United Learning website.
