Governors

The Skills Hub and The Young People’s Academy have a joint Local Governing Body (LGB) which has been given certain delegated responsibilities by the Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (OHCAT) Board of Directors through a Scheme of Delegation.

Some of the LGB’s key responsibilities are:

Setting the strategic direction of the Academy by:

  • Ensuring the values, aims and objectives for the Academy are aligned to those of OHCAT
  • Implementing the policy framework for achieving the agreed aims and objectives
  • Setting statutory targets
  • Agreeing the Academy improvement strategy

Challenging and supporting the Academy by monitoring, reviewing and evaluating:

  • The implementation and effectiveness of the policy framework
  • Progress towards targets
  • The implementation and effectiveness of the Academy improvement strategy
  • The budget and the staffing structure

Ensuring accountability by:

  • Monitoring the Academy’s self-evaluation documentation
  • Responding to Ofsted reports when necessary
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the performance of the Academy
  • Ensuring parents and pupils are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate
  • Making information available to the community

The LGB generally meets once a term and comprises of people from the community with relevant skills and experience, parent and staff governors.

Additionally, the LGB has established a Pay Committee comprised of the Chair of the LGB and two further governors – these will     be the HR portfolio holder and the Finance portfolio holder unless circumstances do not permit. The Pay Committee meets once a year to consider the Headteacher’s salary recommendations for all teaching staff, and to ensure that all pay decisions have been made in line with OHC&AT’s Pay Policy and OHC&AT’s Appraisal Policy.

Thank you, and God bless you for all the work you have done with my son. It feels like I have my son back.
