About the Governing Body
Local Governing Bodies operate at each of Brook Learning Trust’s academies, governing by means of the Circle Model of governance. In the context of the direction set by the Directors of BLT, the Local Governing Body of High Weald Academy plays a strategic role, working with academy leaders, to:
- Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
- Hold the Principal to account for the educational performance of the academy and its pupils
- Oversee the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
- Set aims and objectives, ensure delivery against them and agree, monitor and review policies, targets and priorities
