The key purpose of LAT Local Academy Committees (LACs) is to help LAT Schools provide the best possible education and opportunities for pupils within the ethos of ‘excellence and equity for all children in a Christian context’. They do this by making decisions collectively, and in collaboration with the LAT Board of Directors, by:
Setting the school’s values, vision and strategic aims, which involves
Monitoring and evaluating performance
Ensuring that the school is accountable to the children and parents it serves, to its local community, to those who fund and maintain it, as well as to the staff it employs
The LDBS LAT BOARD
The LDBS Academies Trust has a small board of directors which oversees 12 schools through its chief executive; each school has a local academy committee which looks after the day to day operation of their school.
