The Howard Academy Trust

 

INTRODUCTION

The Howard Academy Trust (the "Trust") is governed by a Board of Directors (the "Directors") who are accountable to the Department for Education and have overall responsibility and ultimate decision-making authority for all of the work of the Trust, including the establishing and running of the academies operated by the Trust.  The following academies are currently operated by the Trust: -

 

  • The Howard School
  • Deanwood Primary School
  • Temple Mill Primary School
  • Thamesview Primary School
  • Miers Court Primary School

 

In order to assist with the discharge of their responsibilities, the Directors have established a Local Academy Board ("LAB") for each of the Academies.  The LAB shall be a committee established pursuant to Articles 100 to 104 (inclusive) of the "Articles of Association of the Trust (the "Articles").  The Directors may review these terms of reference at any time, but shall review them at least annually.

 

These terms of reference may only be amended by the Board of Directors.

 

CONSTITUTION OF THE LABs

Members of the LAB shall be known as 'governors'.

 

The Directors have the right to appoint such persons to the LAB as they shall determine from time to time.

 

The composition of Miers Court Primary School shall be comprised as follows: -

 

  • The Headteacher of the Academy (or the Executive Principal if no such person is appointed)
  • up to 2 staff governors
