Intended Impact

  • Members of the local governing bodies are confident in their evaluations and understanding, and do not shy away from challenging leaders about variations in outcomes for pupil groups, especially between disadvantaged and other pupils
  • Members of the local governing bodies monitor the effectiveness of the actions leaders take to secure and sustain improvements to teaching, learning and assessment and effectively hold them to account for this. This is communicated effectively to the Trust Board through the minutes of the local governing body meetings
