The Local Governing Body of Marian Vian Primary School
The Local Governing Body (LGB) of Marian Vian Primary School is a committee of the main board of the Compass Academy Trust. Compass Academy Trust came into existence as a multi-academy trust on 1 September 2015. The four schools in the Trust are:
Marian Vian Primary School
Oak Lodge Primary School
Unicorn Primary School
Wickham Common Primary School
Each Academy has its own Local Governing Body which has been established by the Board in accordance with the Trust’s Articles.
Local Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities: they can only act corporately – NOT individually. They are made up from parents, teachers and those appointed by Compass Academy Trust, some of whom were formerly LA or community representatives.
Parent Local Governors:
are parents, or an individual exercising parental responsibility, of a pupil registered at the school at the time of their election
are elected by parents and carers of children at the School
serve, as do all Governors, for a period of four years
Parent Local Governors bring the views of parents and carers to the Local Governing Body but they speak and act as individuals. They are not delegates or mouthpieces of parents and they do not vote for all parents in general. They have equal status in the work of the Local Governing Body and have normal voting rights.
