Governance

South Bank Academies and its Schools are governed by a Board of Directors with the overall responsibility for the Academy Trust. The Board is supported by an Audit Committee.

The Board appoints the School Advisory Boards to provide local Governance for each School. Each School Advisory Board has its own link governors in different specific areas, which currently are Pupil Premium, Special Education Needs (SEN), Curriculum, Employment Engagement, Safeguarding, HR/Health & Safety and Parental Engagement. The School Advisory Boards meet six times in Academic Year. In addition, the link governors make a minimum of two school visits in an academic year.

Each link governor engages actively with their School through school visits and undertaking specific Governance tasks to support the School Advisory Board and the Principal.
