One of the differences about being an Academy is that King Offa has a Local Academy Board (LAB) instead of a governing body. This board is made up of people who all work hard to help make sure King Offa is delivering the best possible standard of education. The 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.
