GRAY’S FARM PRIMARY ACADEMY LOCAL GOVERNING BODY [LGB]
The LGB for Gray’s Farm was re-constituted in February 2016 after a period of 10 months when the previous LGB was removed by TKAT and the governance of the school was undertaken by an Interim Executive Board [IEB]. The three TKAT appointed members of the IEB have transferred to the newly formed LGB.

STRUCTURE OF MEETINGS
Formal meetings of the Local Governing Body are currently held on a monthly basis and have followed on from the pattern inherited by the IEB. All business is undertaken at these meetings but there is an unequivocal focus on the core business of the school namely: raising expectations through high quality teaching and learning and accelerating pupil progress thereby raising overall levels of attainment. The key function of the LGB is to:
- Ensure that there is a clarity of the vision, ethos and strategic direction for Gray’s Farm
- Hold the Executive Headteacher and Head of School to account for the further improvement required for pupils progress and attainment
- Ensure that the school’s money is well spent and financial systems and procedures are secure
