Local Academy Committee

As per Christ Church CofE Multi-Academy Trusts Articles of Association and Scheme of Delegation, each school within the Christ Church CofE Multi Academy Trust has its own Local Academy Committee (LAC), which must have a minimum of 2 parent partners in its membership.


Local Academy Committee's have powers and responsibility delegated to them by the Trust Board of Directors and from the Chief Executive Officer, so that those people closest to a school have the prerogative to work in partnership effectively.


We strongly believe that excellent schools have excellent leadership and management from within.


The Trust has a duty to ensure that it enables excellent leadership in each of our schools through empowerment and support.


The Christ Church C of E MAT Governance Handbook includes the terms of reference for Local Academy Committees and outlines the code of conduct for partners at all levels.
