Local Advisory Board

The school's local advisory board (LAB) contributes to raising standards of achievement and the strategic development of the school. The LAB is drawn from different parts of the community and includes parents, staff and other groups.

“In a well-managed school, the Head Teacher and Governing Body work in close partnership”

The LAB has a range of duties and powers and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. Its responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • setting targets for pupil achievement
  • agreeing the school's self-evaluation form and school development plan
  • monitoring behaviour and attendance
  • managing the school's in-year spending
  • making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based
  • supporting in the recruitment of staff

The LAB has considerable discretion as to how to discharge its responsibilities but is required to constitute itself in line with the regulations and to appoint a chair and vice chair. The LAB may delegate certain of its responsibilities to certain members or committees, although in general, it is not compelled to do so.
