What is the role of Governors?
The Department for Education indicates that effective governance is based on six key features:
•Strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy.
•Accountability that drives up educational standards and financial performance.
•People with the right skills, experience, qualities and capacity.
•Structures that reinforce clearly defined roles and responsibilities.
•Compliance with statutory and contractual requirements.
•Evaluation to monitor and improve the quality and impact of governance.

The Local Governing Board of Lanlivery and Blisland Primary Academies reports to the Trustees of Bridge Schools. The board is well-served by a group of enthusiastic Governors. They meet approximately every half term, to support and challenge the school leadership team, with the aim of improving outcomes of all our pupils.
Governors are volunteers who have the pupils' best interests at heart. Please click on the box below to see the Local Governing Board's Annual Statement.
If you would like to find out more about what Governors do, or find out about vacancies, please don't hesitate to contact the Clerk to Governors, Julia Stoneman firstname.lastname@example.org
