Governance responsibilities are held between Aurora Academies Trust and the Local Academy Board.
The Local Academy Board (LAB) works in a similar way to a governing body and performs many of the same functions. The real difference is that the financial and legal responsibility is held by Aurora Academies Trust Board. This allows the LAB members to be focused on the learning and progress of pupils and not be burdened by the additional responsibility. The LAB play an important role in supporting and challenging King Offa and we are very grateful for the time they give to the school on a voluntary basis. Since March 2018 King Offa Academy and Glenleigh Park Academy have been operating a joint LAB. This decision was taken to maximise the use of LAB members skills across both schools. The close proximity (less than one mile) means that the LAB can operate effectively and strategically in it’s work. The LAB reports to the Regional Standards Council which in turn feeds into the Trust.
