Governance

South Bank Academies and its schools are governed by a Board of Trustees.  The Board is responsible for the Academy Trust and is accountable to the Secretary of State for its performance.  

As part of the LSBU group, the Boards of Trustees of South Bank Academies, South Bank College and the LSBU Board of Governors have established a committee of the Boards known as the Group Nomination Committee. To enable the committee to discharge its duties, it will establish from time to time institutional panels to recruit governors or trustees within the group. Under delegated authority from the committee, the SBA panel recommends potential SBA ‘independent’ trustees to the SBA Board for approval.

To support the Board in its role, the Board has established several committees: 

  • Audit Committee which is responsible for monitoring internal controls and risk management within the trust.  The Chair of the audit committee is Richard Flatman
  • Remuneration Committee which is responsible for reviewing executive pay decisions and the trust’s pay policy.  The Chair of the remuneration committee is Hilary McCallion

The Board has established School Advisory Boards to provide local governance for each school.  Governors are elected from the parent and staff bodies and invited from members of the local community.  

Each School Advisory Board appoints link governors who are responsible for the areas of delegated responsibility (see Scheme of Delegation document below): Pupil Premium, Special Education Needs (SEN), Curriculum, Employment Engagement, Safeguarding, and Parental/Community Engagement. 

The School Advisory Boards meet six times during the academic year. In addition, the link governors make a minimum of two school visits in an academic year.
