The role of the Local Academy Committee

Chesterton Primary School is an academy within the Wandle Learning Trust. The Wandle Learning Trust is governed by a Board of Trustees and has oversight of all the academies in the Trust. A Local Academy Committee is responsible for academy-specific matters. 

Information on the composition, the role of the Board of Trustees and annual accounts can be found here.

Working closely together, the Board of Trustees and the Local Academy Committee (LAC) have three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the academy and its pupils
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the academy and making sure its money is well spent
